It happens every year, we get the first few sunny, hot days and we bask in the sun, drinking it up like we have been shut-in all winter (which we have, by the way).
Then, at the end of the day, we come into the house and realize we have farmer’s tans and ouch-y shoulder tops.
Every year, I see it coming and forget, as if, subconsciously, I am trying to get a sunburn.
Let me tell you, people, sunburns are over-rated and downright dangerous.
Why not bask in the sun, like a #boss, smartly protecting your skin because it’s the only God-given skin you got in this life and that’s worth protecting!
6 Favorite Items To Pack for Summer Vacation Skin Protection
Protect your beautiful eyes!
You won’t have to squint in the sun if you have some lovely shades on.
These are my favorite sunglasses and I never leave home without them.
I have had these for 3+ years now and they are really a staple in my wardrobe.
The fashion choices are endless here.
I am always loving fedora-type styles. People always look put together when they have a hat on and so stylish.
I have this tightly woven straw hat with linen detail in my hat collection and will be rocking it this Summer vacation.
Special thanks to my mom who found this hat for me!
3. Halter Tank Swimwear
I love clothing that gives you options.
Why not have a break from matchy-matchy swimwear and have different top and bottom combinations?
Nothing says, I know what I like and want to wear like 2 different pieces that you put together!
I love the hipster shorts for more coverage to protect against the sun and the long, shirt-style top.
By the way, I found this combo to be awesome for my post-baby body.
4. Board Shorts
I know, I know, don’t board shorts a little late 90’s Delia’s catalog in terms of style?
Um, like what’s wrong with that? I still want those clothes!
These are a great cover-up post-swim and dry off fast.
Why not have a bold hibiscus print while we are at it?
5. Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless Sunscreen
I love the silky-soft feel of Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless Sunscreen.
This is your home base in terms of sun protection.
I kid you not, the scent is like the ocean!
I want to wear this as my everyday lotion because the scent just takes me away to a tropical paradise!
As in the photo below of the beach in Cancun, Mexico where Eric and I went on our Honeymoon.
The scent of this lotion really reminds me of that amazing time there!
Look at that smile in the picture!
Could I be any more jubilant that I am basking in the tropical sun? Remember it is possible to enjoy the sun and be protected.
I share another photo below from our honeymoon to tell you why…
Here is more information on Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless Sunscreen:
- It’s nice because you can barely feel the sunscreen
- I learned that it is the newest sunscreen in the Silk Hydration line and it gives 12-hour moisturization. It has a unique, new breathable formula and its signature ultra-luxurious hydrating silk ribbons and it provides broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, leaving your skin silky smooth.
- It is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation to protect against the sun’s harmful rays and it’s available in SPF 30.
- It is blended with exotic island botanicals and the signature feels incredibly lightweight and smooth on the skin.
Above is a photo collage showing where at Target you can find Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless Sunscreen.
I found it near the Cosmetics section, near the Health and Beauty section, and adjacent to the Pharmacy.
Hmm, looks like Eric and I could have used some Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless Sunscreen when we had our honeymoon in Cancun!
I remember the day this photo was taken, I was sick from too much sun exposure, I recovered in time for dinner (of course, no surprise there!) but that was a good lesson in skin protection.
6. Hooded Cover-up
The hooded cover-up is a great addition to my Summer vacation skin protection line up.
It’s a light color, so it doesn’t absorb the sun’s rays and breathable.
I love this piece because it’s packable for throwing in a tote bag and heading off to the beach.
Speaking of the beach…check out some of the places that I will be heading to this Summer with my family below!
