Are you planning that next getaway to enjoy some sun, sea, and sand? Don't let the dream become a nightmare with getting sunburn. As the Aussies say slip, slap, slop! Did you know sun cream contains toxic and damaging chemicals? Now a little older and wiser, I am interested and intrigued by the many Eco-friendly, natural skin care solutions. Have you heard that eating carrots and tomato's helps your skin cope with direct sun better? Here's more on skin care protection, so you can enjoy that dream getaway.

Truth About Sunscreen
A couple of years ago I came across this incredible invention - SolarVis Technology Wrist Band
Perfect for holidays, outdoor sports, or if you are out and about in the sun all-day
Changes colour to indicate to the user to apply more sun cream works in the sea.
This was me trying it out in India where temperatures can reach 40 degrees (104 Fahrenheit). As you can see the white fibres have started to change colour, indicating more sun protection is required.
There are a few on the market which are for daily use only. This one continues to work much longer and is also machine washable.

Sun Protection Clothing
Did you know that sun-protective clothing is even a thing? A few years ago I came across Craghoppers clothing. They specialise in travel and leisure clothing with not only sun protection but also mosquito repellent!
I don't travel anywhere now without my solarshield and nosilife protective clothing.
Did you know the solarshield clothing provides up to UPF50+ from harmful UV rays? So you can get out and enjoy the sunshine without taking risks.
The clothing is lightweight, easy to wash, and drys very quickly. The trousers are waterproof, ideal for hiking, smart for playing golf, and comfortable for those long-haul flights.
The mid-season sale is now on with up to 40% off including best-selling products. Traveling to an exotic location with mosquitos don't miss the nosiLife clothing.
