It’s officially pool season, and it’s time to protect our skin from those crazy-harmful, summer rays! I’ve learned my lesson multiple times, by not wearing the right sunscreen, or just plain forgetting it. I’ve been a lobster waaay too many times I care to admit. 😉 So, I’m going to share some of my favorite ways to protect skin from that summer sun.

 It’s so important to take care of our skin, and keep it looking flawless (or at least, with as few issues as possible). If we want to have glowing beautiful skin, we need to cover it up! There plenty of options out there, and wearing a hat is one of them. Not only are we protecting our face and shoulders, but we look pretty fab, too! It’s not sunscreen, but I thought I’d throw it in there.

 Since it’s not super practical to wear a giant umbrella, or wear long sleeves and pants throughout the summer, an essential way to protect is using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
