Skin Protecting Items for Sunny Days

Now that the Summer Sun is here we wanted to share some of our favorite items to help you protected your skin. Everybody thinks sunscreen lotion and sprays first, but there are plenty of other methods to stay away from the sun's harmful rays.  If we were to recommend a sun spray or lotion our top pick is Sun Bum.  Taking care of your skin is key if you're on the beach by the water.  The water can reflect the sun's rays giving you more sun exposure than you realize.  If you are boating, surfing, skiing, or any activity on the water you should keep your skin covered in sunscreen.  Sun Bum makes a wide range of products from skin cooling sprays and lotions to sunscreens.  Find 15-70 SPF protecting products for all skin tones and types. 

Why do we like Sun Bum Sunscreens?  

  1. No Testing on Animals
  2. Sulfate-Free
  3. Reef Friendly
