There’s something about spending a day at the beach. Letting loose, enjoying the ocean waves, lounging around the beach, reading a book, flying a kite, or building a sandcastle. Something we all look forward to no matter where we reside.
With that being said, a day at the beach, can also be very serious to our skin. Especially, for those of us with very fair skin, protection against the sun becomes so important, something I’ve learned from an early age.
Sunscreen, becomes front and center, on days we spend outdoors. What if there was something else that could help protect us against the sun?
This past weekend, as my family and I headed out for a weekend of camping along the beach side, I brought a Sun Cover Up with me, a product by Coolibar. Coolibar is Sun Protective Clothing that offers UPF 50+ protection against the sun. So, a full day at the beach will keep you protected for hours on end, wherever your clothing covers you up.
As I brought out my Coolibar coverup, I first noticed how light weight it felt, meaning, that even on really hot weathered days, the cover up wouldn’t make you too hot and sweaty. I loved having the ability to zip it up and down for my comfort level throughout the day, and the easiness and flow of the cover up.
My family and friends also mentioned the cover up and were curious to hear more about it. They loved the colors of the cover up, and the fabric.
Needless to say, this cover up is something I’ll be bringing out to future beach days, swim days, or any time spent outdoors for an extended period of time.
Please note: The Coolibar Cover Up shouldn’t be your only form of sun protection. The cover up will only protect the skin it covers so sunscreen will still be needed.
