WHY YOU NEED SUN PROTECTION IN WINTER!

WHY YOU NEED SUN PROTECTION IN WINTER!

Sunburnt in winter? Something you don’t often think about or talk about, until you get sunburnt in winter and it’s too late. Many associate summer and heat with sunburn but winter in many parts of Australia still have a high level of UV. In Queensland, the UV Index rarely goes below 3. The UV Index is rated from 1 to 15 which means at a level of 3 or above, the UV is enough to cause damage very quickly. Don’t forget, UV rays from the sun not heat causes sunburn.

BUCKET HATS AND SUN PROTECTION

BUCKET HATS AND SUN PROTECTION

It is recommended that using the five sun protective measures SLIP, SLOP, SLAP, SEEK, SLIDE will ensure that you give yourself the best chance to avoid the harmful effects of the sun. For me, mainly using physical sun protective swimwear and/or clothing as a barrier to the sun’s harmful rays in combination with the other measures, is my 'go to' sun protection strategy.

A SIMPLE GUIDE TO BUYING SWIMWEAR ONLINE

A SIMPLE GUIDE TO BUYING SWIMWEAR ONLINE

A good friend said to me recently, “getting the size right is only half the challenge”. 

Coming up with a game plan before you embark on your online swimsuit adventure is worth it. Here are a few tips to help you on your journey:

Consider your existing bikini draw and to an extent your undie draw (Yep! Your underwear draw). Make a note of what you do and don’t want from your next purchase by trying on a few of your current styles, undies included. 

What do you want from your swimwear? Just like in your underwear draw, there are different styles for different activities. Think about what you want to do in your swimwear. Are you active, lounging or a mixture of both? A string bikini will be good for lounging but not so much if you’re hitting the surf.
