Spending time out in the sun and soaking up some Vitamin D can really help your health and mood. Too much sun, without proper protection, can cause minor skin problems like wrinkles, or major problems like melanoma. This doesn’t mean you always have to stay in the shade, there are many fashion solutions that can keep you cool, protected, and looking fabulous.

Moisturize and Protect Your Skin

The first thing that you should do every morning before heading out is applying a moisturizing cream with added SPF protection. This will help protect your skin from too much UV exposure.

Long Sleeves and Long Pants

While it is hot in the summer, long sleeves and pants can protect you from the sun without having you overheat. Choose cooling fabrics like linen, silk and cotton gauze. They are all light, breathable, and cooling (especially when you avoid dark colors).
