Raise Your Beach Fashion IQ

Posted on Mar 25, 2008 at 10:14AM

After all the money invested in reversing age spots and sun damage, I knew that I had to trade in my ball cap for a floppier chapeau. I learned from my dermatologist that she not only suggests this clothing line to her patients but wears Coolibar clothing and hats, too.

No offense, doc, but when you first gave me the Coolibar catalog, I thought this style was fashion-backward, but now having raised my skin cancer prevention IQ, I realized that this is fashion-forward and a smart choice for the beach.

Coolibar is made with Suntect fabric which blocks 98 percent of harmful rays. It has a UPF -- ultraviolet protection factor -- of 50, blocking UVA and UVB waves. The Skin Cancer Foundation has awarded its Seal of Recommendation to this sun-protective clothing brand, the first clothing manufacturer to receive that honor.

So I will be sporting Coolibar's Signature hat ($39.95), a cotton canvas hat made with Suntect fabric.

For added protection, I ordered the Bermuda blue beach shirt with hood ($59.95).

I also learned from Barb (Barb's Beauty Tips for Babes Over 60 ) that by simply adding SunGuard to your laundry, you can transform everyday clothing into sun protective gear with a UPF protection of 30.

So now that my beach fashion IQ has been raised, I am now ready for some sunshine. How about you girls?

Another brand that offers a great selection of sun protective clothing is Solumbra by Sun Precautions: Their products are well made (last forever!), fashionable, and phenomenal at protecting your skin from UVA/UVB rays at 30+SPF!
