We all love to have some fun in the sun but we’re here to remind you that blocking harmful rays isn’t seasonal. Whether you’re playing surfside or gliding down snow covered slopes, you will want these must-haves. Get outdoors and live the life you are dreaming of and do it in style and with safety in mind.
We are obsessed with the super stylish Mott50 and so is Chrissy Teigen as you can see from the picture above. Their 50 UPF certified collection is for women and children. They are known as the leader in fashionable sun protective apparel. We often feature this brand as a “Mommy & Me” must-have. Mott50 offers more than summer swimwear and resort wear – check out their longsleeve dresses, cardigans and athletic leggings.
We love the Avocado and Le Orangerie prints as shown and yes, you can wear (and should wear) colorful trending fruit and veggie prints all year long. Pair these leggings with and oversized chunky sweater and ankle booties for a fresh seasonal look, or take them on that cruise you’ve been dying to go on or to your local yoga class. They work year-round!

After speaking of preventitive measures for anti-aging and skin cancer with multiple dermatoligists, two out of three told us to be sure “zinc” is in the ingredients. We went on a mission and this is what we liked best! The natural face moisturizer from block island skincare. Their unique SPF moisturizer uses a breakthrough transparent zinc. Combining organic and natural ingredients like green tea antioxidants, shea butter, and pomegranate, it all comes together in this clear SPF 30 broad spectrum protection daily moisturizer that nourishes the skin and prevents wrinkles, early skin aging, and sun damage.
