On-Trend Sun Protection for Your Skin

By Maddy Weedle, Jul 29


To ensure your skin is protected from Calgary’s UV rays this long weekend, we've come up with a list of sun-safe products and fashions that will also keep your style on point.

1. Daily Facial Sunscreen: Not only is the skin on your face most sensitive to sun damage, but it is also continually exposed to UV rays. Dermatologists recommend applying an SPF moisturizer to your face all year long, with a stronger SPF during summer months. We love La Roche-Posay's Anthelios in an SPF 60. In addition to being ultra-light and fast-absorbing, it boasts a matte finish, is fragrance free and water resistant.

2. Straw Hat: A straw hat is a trendy accessory that also protects your scalp and face from the sun. This Babajaan hat from Club Monaco is both rustic and refined. Hand woven by local artisans in Ecuador, this hat is perfect for the sophisticated globetrotter.

3. Kimono: A sheer kimono is the perfect piece to throw on for a little extra sun coverage. Opt for a breezy material that is light-weight for those hot summer days. We love this Eastern-inspired kimono from BCBGMAXAZRIA that has a relaxed fit and can be worn over a bathing suit at the beach or a tank-top and jeans.

4. Sunglasses: It's worth investing in a pair of high quality UV protection sunglasses, not only for their trendy appeal, but also to protect your eyes and the skin directly beneath them. We love these elegant cat-eyes from Michael Kors that have jewel-embellished links on the side.

5. SPF Lip Balm: A moisturizing lip balm with an SPF is a necessity for dry summers in Calgary. Bite Beauty’s BB For Lips, available at Sephora creates just-kissed, healthy and hydrated lips with the benefit of SPF 15. It even comes in five different summery colours so you can switch up your look, and keep those lushious lips protected.

Sephora Bite Beauty BB For Lips $28

6. Maxi Dress: When picking out a casual day-time dress, opt for one that is a maxi length. Maxi dresses are perfect for the summer as they are cool and flowy, as well as protect your legs from the sun. We love this Ikat Patio Dress from Banana Republic that is a breezy linen and cotton fabric blend perfect for warm summer days.
