Staying Sun-Safe at the Beach: Your Ultimate Guide


When you’re spending a day at the beach, soaking up the sun and enjoying the waves, it’s essential to prioritize your skin’s health. Sun protection isn’t just about avoiding painful sunburns; it’s about safeguarding your skin from long-term damage caused by harmful UV rays. In this guide, we’ll explore how to protect yourself at the beach while still looking stylish. Let’s dive in!

1. Choose UPF-Rated Clothing

Find Your Coast® Apparel understands the importance of sun safety. That’s why they offer a fantastic range of swimwear and beachwear with built-in UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) ratings. UPF clothing provides an extra layer of defense against UV radiation, blocking harmful rays and reducing your risk of skin cancer. Look for rash guards, swim shirts, and cover-ups made from UPF fabrics.

2. Wide-Brimmed Hats and Sunglasses

Accessorize smartly! A wide-brimmed hat not only adds a touch of elegance to your beach ensemble but also shields your face, neck, and shoulders from direct sunlight. Pair it with oversized sunglasses that provide UV protection for your eyes. Find Your Coast® Apparel offers stylish hats and more that combine fashion with function.

3. Sunscreen: Your Best Friend

Never underestimate the power of sunscreen. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher before hitting the beach. Reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating. Find Your Coast® Apparel recommends lightweight, quick-drying clothing that won’t interfere with your sunscreen application.

4. Seek Shade During Peak Hours

The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If possible, find a shady spot under an umbrella, palm tree, or beach tent during these hours. Not only will you protect your skin, but you’ll also stay cooler.

5. Hydrate and Cover Up

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Dehydrated skin is more susceptible to sun damage. Additionally, consider a stylish beach cover from Find Your Coast® Apparel. These pieces provide extra coverage for your shoulders and arms without compromising on style.

6. Remember Your Lips and Hands

Lips and hands are often overlooked when it comes to sun protection. Use a lip balm with SPF to prevent chapped lips and sunburn. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your hands, especially if you’re building sandcastles or playing beach volleyball.

7. Beach Umbrellas and Tents

Invest in a portable beach umbrella or pop-up tent. These provide excellent shade and allow you to enjoy the beach without direct sun exposure. Find Your Coast® Apparel’s beach accessories will be including stylish beach umbrellas that complement your beachwear. Please check back with us.


Find Your Coast® Apparel believes that sun safety doesn’t mean sacrificing style. With their UPF-rated clothing, chic accessories, and practical tips, you can enjoy the beach while keeping your skin protected. So, next time you head to the coast, remember to pack your sun essentials and make the most of your beach day!
