Smarter (and More Stylish) Ways to Protect Yourself from the Sun

By August 25, 2017Chrome Dome Updates

It can be difficult to enjoy the outdoors if you’re constantly worrying about sun exposure. It’s not always easy, or practical, to cover every part of your body that is vulnerable to UVB and UVA rays. When you’re tired of missing the same spot when putting on sunscreen it may be time to reconsider how you keep the sun off your back (both literally and figuratively.) We’ll give you some smart ways to dress for sun protection without compromising your personal fashion sense.

UPF Clothing

UPF clothing keeps the sun’s ultraviolet rays from finding their way to your sensitive skin. If you’re wearing only a thin cotton shirt or slacks, you may be getting far more damage to your skin than you realize. UPF clothing is made for men, women, boys and girls. It’s designed as much to keep your body free from skin cancer as it is to keep you looking good.

Spray Tans

While we know laying out in the sun is bad for us, as many a bride-to-be will tell you, sometimes that sun-kissed glow is necessary! A spray-on tan can be a far healthier alternative to spending hours in the sun. There are plenty of options available that are easy to use, won’t damage your skin, and still manage to give you the natural look you crave. You don’t have to expose yourself to damaging UVA and UVB rays just to get a little bit of bronze in your life.

Chrome Dome Caps

Try as you might, it’s difficult to protect your head from sun damage. Unless you attempt to use suntan lotion the same way you would a mousse or a gel (which is not recommended), you’re going to need to find a better solution to protect the natural part in your hair or any thinning and balding areas. Chrome Dome Caps keep your whole head protected from damaging UVA and UVB rays, so you won’t end up with any surprising red patches. Have you ever worn a baseball cap backwards for a few hours and ended up with a sunburn? That red half-moon is not a good look. Perfect for both dry land and water sports, these caps fit incredibly well without compromising on style. They look great for practically any situation — especially when you’re on the move.

Sun protection does take a little bit of planning, but it doesn’t have to be a chore. There are plenty of products and solutions that can fit your lifestyle and your fashion sense!
