Be Sun Smart.

These days, most of us seem to have the sunscreen routine down, but did you know the latest trend in protecting yourself from harmful rays is all about layering?

When a national skin cancer crisis hit Australia, people like John Barrows fought back. And luckily for us, John brought his sun-savvy ways here to the U.S. with his company Coolibar. Coolibar makes clothes for the whole family with a UPF of 50+ (UPF is just like SPF in sunscreen, only it measures the protective power of fabric). They even figured out a way to get zinc oxide in the fabric! Apply the sunscreen, layer on a cover up, swim top, or hat from Coolibar, and you’re ready to go.

(Here’s a nifty fact: “Coolibar” is the name for a eucalyptus tree that grows in the harsh Austrialian outback. The tree provides the perfect shady place to take shelter from the sun – just like these cool clothes.)
