Summer Skincare Essentials: Protecting Your Skin with Cabana Life

As the summer sunshine calls us outdoors, it's crucial to prioritize our skin's health while enjoying the warm weather. At Cabana Life, we understand the importance of sun protection without compromising on style. Join us as we explore essential tips and product recommendations to keep your skin safe and radiant throughout the summer months.

1. Embrace UPF Clothing:

One of the most effective ways to shield your skin from harmful UV rays is by wearing UPF clothing. Cabana Life offers a wide range of stylish UPF 50+ apparel that blocks over 98% of UVA and UVB rays. From breezy beach cover ups to chic dresses and rashguards, our pieces are designed to keep you protected without sacrificing fashion.

2. Wear a Wide-Brimmed Hat:

Complete your sun protection ensemble with a wide-brimmed hat, such as our White Wide Brim Sun Hat. Hats provide additional shade for your face, ears and neck, areas often overlooked but prone to sun damage. Opt for hats made from UPF materials for enhanced protection.

3. Apply Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen:

Sunscreen is non-negotiable, even on cloudy days. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating. Look for water-resistant formulas that won't wash off easily. 

4. Protect Your Eyes:

Don't forget to shield your eyes from UV exposure by wearing sunglasses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Look for sunglasses labeled as UV400 or provide 100% UV protection to ensure optimal eye safety.

5. Seek Shade During Peak Hours:

Limit your sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV rays are strongest. Seek shade under umbrellas, trees or, our fave, cabanas whenever possible, especially during outdoor activities.

Even when in the shade or indoors it's important to still wear sunscreen and UPF clothing. The sun's harmful rays reflect off concrete and water, and they also penetrate glass. Keep it casual and throw on an item from our Loungewear Collection, designed with cozy UPF 50+ fabrics.
