Protecting Your Family From The Sun

Protecting Your Family From The Sun

It is imperative we are protecting our family from the sun during these excessively high temperatures we have seen.  I will tan when I am in the sun, but it takes me a while to get there and I usually burn more than tan.  Caitlin is much like me in that she also burns pretty easily.  My husband Chris seems to tan if it just feels hot outside and Henry is like him.  I envied the guys ability to tan so easily but when you think of the damages from the sun, they are not quite so enviable!  I am pretty good about keeping up with sunscreen when the kids are outdoors but I don’t think of buying them hats or other protective items for the sun.  I didn’t even know there was specially made clothing that could protect you from the sun.  I mean, yes, if you wear a shirt you can block out the sun’s rays, but there is fabric that can block those rays 100%.  Cool idea!!

Coolibar is an e-commerce site that is dedicated to protecting your family from the harmful and harsh rays of Mr. Sun.  You can find a huge variety of items including hats, sunglasses, umbrellas, protective swimwear and more.  For a day on the water, you can find several products that will block out virtually all of the sun’s rays.  If you have a pet, you can even find a shelter that will keep them safe while you are on the water, camping or just relaxing outdoors at home.  With a rating of UPF 50+, which means a product blocks 98% of the sun’s rays, Coolibar products are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.  With skin cancer being such a risk for those who spend time outdoors, they don’t hand out their seal of approval to just anyone.  With the Coolibar protective clothing you are not only protected from the burring rays of the sun, but you are also protected from the aging rays of the sun.  With 50 staring me down, I am looking for any way to hold back the hands of time the best I can.

Blocking The Sun's Rays

Blocking The Sun’s Rays

When I take the kids to the lake, I don’t always get in the water with them.  Often times, I bring a school book so I can study while I am keeping an eye on the kids.  I usually try to find a nice tree to hide under, but that isn’t always possible.  What I didn’t know is even if I found a tree to hide under; I wasn’t necessarily protected from the sun’s rays.  The hats from Coolibar are not only made to block out 98% of the sun’s rays, but they are awfully cute and stylish as well!  I LOVE the Tropicana Sun Hat ($45.00) with its wider brim and pretty scarf.  It is perfect for keeping the sun out of my eyes and off my skin.  Caitlin took the Marina Sun Hat ($35.00) which looks like a hat made to wear out on the boat for a fun afternoon!  I could not be happier with the quality made and protective items from Coolibar.  I am looking forward to trying out some of the protective swimwear next!!

One reader will receive one hat of their choice valued up to $59.99
