Solar Flair

Catch some rays but don’t drop your guard. Six cool items to protect you from the sun’s glare.



 See and Be Seen

Coach keeps your eyes free from the sun’s damaging rays with its stylish Natasha sunglasses. The fashion-forward frames with gradient lenses come in either brown (shown) or black/gray and offer 100 percent UV protection. $158, Sunglass Hut, The Mall at Millenia and The Florida Mall

 


 

Life Saver

Protect your skin against harmful UV rays and save the coral reefs while you’re at it. Caribbean Solutions’ biodegradable sunscreen is notable for what it does not contain: artificial preservatives, parabens, emulsifiers and other chemicals that can wash off and damage the ocean’s coral reefs. Available in SPF 4-25. $12-$13, Hoover’s Market, Altamonte Springs, hooversmarket.com; caribbean-sol.com

 


 

Burn Notice

Ever wondered when to apply more sunscreen while enjoying a sunny day at the beach? Worn on the wrist, UV SunSense plastic recyclable bands monitor your level of sun exposure and change color—from dark purple to lavender to white—to alert you when to reapply sunscreen or take a break in the shade. Pack of seven wristbands, $7.99, cvs.com

 


 

Hot Head

This chic, oversized hat is rated UPF 50+ and has a 7 ½-inch brim to provide protection from the sun. It comes in 10 different colors including red (shown) and is lightweight, hand-washable and crushable. $49, coolibar.com

 


 

Take Cover

Have fun in the sun without getting burned. This fashionable “Moroccan-style” rashguard is made of 50+ UV sun protection fabric. The zippered neck provides maximum coverage, and the side-cinching ties can be adjusted for length—above or below the hips. $64, cabanalife.com

 


 

Sun Kissed
