Hot days are here to stay for a while! For ultimate protection from the heat and sun, professionals say to stay indoors during peak hours (11am-4pm). Yeah, okay. It’s summer, we want to be outside! So, while that may be sound advice, some of us need a way around that unrealistic expectation. Ideal sunscreen for your skin type, adqeuate shade, and a way to keep cool will help with this. When you’re not in the pool, chances are you’re relaxing on the patio. Pair a nice fan with a huge market umbrella, and you have a safe, cool way to enjoy the backyard during the hot days. You don’t need an unsightly box fan or boring umbrella either… check out some of my favorite cooling products below! Just click the photo to learn more about the item that catches your eye!
