Here comes the sun.
Summer goal: Relax at the beach.

Get sun safe with our tips before heading out for a perfect beach experience.

Philosophy of our conscious, slow-fashion beachwear brand is to make your sea experience perfect: striking the balance between comfort and style while taking care of both your skin and nature.

Before you head outside to enjoy sunshine,
here’s what you need to know about sun safety.


How to choose sunscreen

It only takes 15 minutes in the sun to damage your skin. So don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your skin religiously to protect it from harmful UV rays of the sun, lower the risk of skin cancer and avoid premature ageing.

Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 or higher. UV rays are stronger near the ocean and this can cause sunburns, wrinkles or even skin cancer. An adequate level of SPF provides additional protection against UVA and UVB rays that cause skin damage. 

How to choose suscreen?

As a slow-fashion beachwear brand, sustainability is part of who we are, that is why we recommend picking sunscreens that are better for you and less harmful for the sea. As much as we love lounging in the sun, we need to be mindful of the sunscreen we use as it can harm marine life, especially coral reefs. Fortunately, there are environmentally safe sunscreens you can use that will keep your skin and the ocean healthy.

Avoid oxybenzone, avobenzone and octinoxate: these ingredients are found in most conventional sunscreens and are linked to coral bleaching. Instead, look for sunscreens that use zinc oxide or titanium oxide as the active ingredients. These are safe for both you and the environment.

Choose a sunscreen that is suitable for water activities. Make sure it’s water-resistant, sweatproof, and does not wash off easily. This is important, especially for those who plan to scuba dive, snorkel, or surf. You don’t want to be constantly reapplying your sunscreen while enjoying your ocean sport. A water-resistant sunscreen will stick onto your skin for a longer period of time.

How to protect skin from sun and salt water exposure

While the rest of your body may be feeling great after a day at the seaside, it is a good idea to give your skin a little extra care following your time on the beach. 

Protect your skin

There are many benefits of sea water for skin: rich in mineral salts such as sodium and iodine, salt water has antiseptic and cicatrizing actions on your skin.
However, the danger lies in the overexposure to salt water which can cause dry and itchy skin. If your skin is naturally prone to dryness, overexposure to salt water or chlorinated swimming pool water can cause even more damage and irritation.

Showering right away when you're done swimming will help to remove any chlorine or salt on your skin before it has a chance to dry it out or cause irritation. 

Keep your skin soft by applying moisturizer or lotion on your skin right after the shower. This will help to lock in the moisture and ensure your skin does not become too dry. We advise picking an aloe-based moisturizer which may soothe any potential sunburn and help cool your skin, dulling any irritation that may start to cause you discomfort.

How to protect hair from exposure to the sun and salt water

You should also wash your hair during the shower, as the chemicals in pool water can damage your hair if they stay on your scalp for too long.

But Is sea water bad for your hair? In short: yes, it can be. Sea water and chlorine both swell the cuticle on the outside layer of the hair, making it look damaged. It also makes hair more tangled and knotty, fades colour and irritates the scalp. That is why applying a barrier product with SPF before you enter the water is a good idea. 

How to protect your hair

Remember, we're sharing the ocean with sea life, so it's always best to use a product that's chemical-free and biodegradable. For example, coconut oil has been known for a natural SPF of 10, so it will not only lock in the moisture in your hair but also create a protective shield, keeping your hair healthy and vibrant even in prolonged sun exposure.

After a long day on the beach, give your hair a good wash: it's important to use a rich conditioner to restore moisture and shine, and minimize frizz.

The last precious piece of advice we can give you is not to forget to stay hydrated. The sun dries out your skin, and the only way to restore that moisture is to drink a lot of water. Soda, coffee, and tea don’t do the same job when it comes to hydration, so when you get home from the beach, try to drink an extra glass of water to help yourself rehydrate.
