Swanwick Sleep has you covered with these summer essentials!

Swanwick Sleep has you covered with these summer essentials!

 As the days grow brighter and you occasionally stick your head in the closest freezer with no intention of cooking, it can only mean one thing — it’s summer, baby! ☀️

While you’re living it up in the sun this summer, it’s essential being cautious of UV overexposure. Did you know Melanoma is the #1 leading cancer among young adults between 25-29? If that’s not alarming enough for ya, UV radiation burns and prematurely ages your skin too.

Now before you consider moving to the mountains, why not try these summer essentials first?

Shield your eyes

Swannies Sunglasses

Swannies Sunglasses

I’m sorry to break it to you but shades are no longer only for concealment or the establishment of Coolness. It also helps for photosensitivity, glaucoma, age or blue light damage-related macular degeneration (Huh? What’s this blue light now?), cataracts, CMV retinitis, and diabetic macular edema. So, not sorry!

TIP: With Swannies Sunnies on your face you might wonder if it’ll be acceptable wearing them indoors? Well, only if you’re blind, can sing like Stevie Wonder (and maaaaybe if you’re his cousin), if you don’t have Day or Night Swannies (which would be A LOT more acceptable anyway and it’ll keep your circadian rhythm in check), or if you have any of the aforementioned conditions. Other than that, you’ll be joining the gang at Doucheville. Rather not go there pal.

Mobile shade

Just like an umbrella won’t stop the rain it won’t stop the sun from shining either, but it will make you stand in both with ease. Either way, think portable-mobile-shade if you will.

Sun Hats

Whether you think it’s too fancy or you don’t want to ruin your $100 hairdo - hats are a must. Considering the hot temperatures in summer (Like Oh My Hat! Crank-up-the-A.C-till-it’s-blowing-snowballs hot), sunscreen alone isn’t enough. No questions asked. Besides, no one will even notice your fancy hair when your face is scorched. 

So be prepared. 👇

Sun Caps Flap Hats UV 360° Solar Protection

Sun Caps Flap Hats UV 360° Solar Protection

If you’re like me and hide behind your couch when people come knocking unannounced, you most likely also avoid the sun at all costs. Let’s face it though, we can’t be hermits nor can we avoid the sun all the time (for health reasons that is). So, with this nifty hat, you can remove the flaps during lesser sunshiny days and clip it back on when it’s like walking through soup out there. Also, it may be good for avoiding small talk.

UPF50 Travel Foldable Brim Summer Hat

UPF50 Travel Foldable Brim Summer Hat

This is more for the fashionistas out there. The brim is large enough but doesn’t fit into the flap hat category (because who wants to look like a spy on the beach and how will I sip on my Margarita at Cabo Cantina? Eew NO!). Plus, this is pretty dang adorable!

Protect your skin

Think you’re immune to sunburn if you have a dark skin tone? Think again. If you have skin you can get sunburn (Yes, you may be less at risk. And no, sunscreen isn’t optional for you). On the other hand, if you’re wishing your teeth were as white as your legs, you ought to be carrying your SPF 50+ in a holster.

Sun Bum SPF 30 Sunscreen

This is your go-to broadspectrum sunscreen lotion with minimal greasiness and skin to clothing transfer, UVA/UVB protection, and water resistance of 80 minutes. Plus, you can head out without looking like you just signed up for Kabuki Theatre. Bonus!

Combine all these summer essentials for SUPERIOR sun protection. Especially if you’re based or heading to a location with a high UV Index level (Like OMG Sandy! Just hold my juice so I can take off my mom jeans!)
