    As we come into summer, the harsh Australian sun comes with us, and it becomes more important to make sure we stay protected when we go about our lives so that we can stay healthy and happy all through summer.  

    Harmful UV rays are a danger we can’t see or feel, so when the UV index is 3 or above, it’s time to be proactive and help keep yourself protected. We’ve got some great tips for you so that you can stay safe this summer.  pexels-kasia-palitava-10266655 (1)

    1. 1. Cover up and cool down.

    Harmful UV rays are one of the biggest worries as we come into the summer months, so it’s important to cover up with long sleeves and long pants. Breathable fabrics make staying covered up comfortable and mean you can give your skin a great layer of protection against sunburn and permanent skin damage. Don’t forget, collared shirts are a fantastic option for protecting the back of the neck, an area we might miss with sunscreen.

    1. 2. Rock your best hat.

    The top of your head is one of the most important areas to protect but can be difficult to cover with sunscreen. So make your best friend this summer your trusty sun hat. The perfect accessory to any outfit this summer, add a hat (preferably one with a wide brim) to your summer wardrobe. 

    1. 3. The smell of summer. 

    Your trustiest tool this summer. Covering unprotected skin with a generous amount of sunscreen 20 minutes before you head out into the sun is a must to help you stay protected. Go for an SPF30 or higher water-resistant sunscreen to help you protect your skin this summer.

      1. 4. For more than just looking great.

      A good pair of sunglasses is a must-have in most cars, bags, and wardrobes. As we come into the summer months protecting your eyes from UV radiation exposure becomes even more important. Add a pair of sunglasses when you head out the door to help protect your eyes.

      5. Find some shade and cool off. 

    When you’re out and about try and find shade when you can, from trees, shop fronts or sunshades, to help you protect yourself. Need to create some shade? Try using an umbrella at the beach or in a park to give your skin a break. Check out our range of umbrellas here.

    Bonus tipIt’s hot out there, make sure you stay hydrated. 

    In summer when temperatures start to nudge 25°C or more it’s important to make sure you stay hydrated so you can feel your best all day. A great way to stay hydrated is to carry a water bottle with you wherever you go and make sure you fill it up at least once throughout the day!
