EXPERTS SAY LIVE WISELY
10 WAYS TO PREVENT AGAINST SUN DAMAGE
Between soccer games, outdoor concerts, travel and everyday moments, we are experiencing life outside more than ever. So, how can we develop a healthy relationship with the sun and stay safe? Experts recommend you start with these top 10 steps for protecting your family and preventing sun damage:
1. ALWAYS WEAR THE RIGHT CLOTHES WHEN OUTDOORS
The average t-shirt provides a UPF of 5–7 and that number drops down to UPF 3 when wet. Coolibar sun protective clothing is UPF 50+, wet or dry.
2. DON’T FORGET TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR
The sun’s UV rays erode the outer layer of your hair. This breaks down melanin and makes hair dry, coarse, wiry, brittle and breakable. Wear a UPF 50+ hat, always.
3. WEAR A WIDE-BRIMMED HAT WHENEVER POSSIBLE
Start at the top and protect your scalp. For every inch of brim you wear, you reduce your lifetime risk of skin cancer by 10%. So a 6″ brim means a 60% risk reduction.
4. PROTECT YOURSELF ON OVERCAST DAYS
The sun’s UVA rays are omnipresent at the same strength year-round. Up to 80% of the sun’s damaging UV radiation penetrates clouds and fog.
5. WEAR SPF 30 SUNSCREEN OR GLOVES ON HANDS
The skin on the back of the hand is thinner and often forgotten. Prevent skin damage and aging on this sun-prone area.
6. STORE A LONG SLEEVE COVER-UP IN THE CAR
Sun-related aging, spots and wrinkling occur right in the seat of your car. UV rays penetrate windows, so wear a UPF 50+hoodie/pullover with long sleeves for daily driving and road trips.
7. MAKE UPF 50+ YOUR BEST ANTI-AGING WEAPON
About 90% of visible skin changes—aging, wrinkles, brown spots and leathery skin—are caused by the sun’s UV rays and can be minimized with Coolibar clothing.
8. BLOCK UVA/UVB RAYS WITH GUARANTEED PROTECTION
Millions of sun-blocking minerals are infused at the fiber or fabric level and are guaranteed UPF 50+ to never wash or wear out for the life of Coolibar garments.
9. WEAR UV-BLOCKING SUNGLASSES
Eyesight is vulnerable to harm from UV rays. Prevent corneal sunburns, melanomas and aging vision with sunglass lenses large enough to cover the skin around your eyes.
10. TRUST COOLIBAR FOR QUALITY UPF 50+ PROTECTION
Clothing is your first line of defense and single most effective form of protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays.

On October 20th, 2013 life granted Trisha the greatest gift. Her name was Savannah Marie and she was born healthy, beautiful and 7.4 lbs. She is her greatest gift because she was the answer to every question she ever had, the solution to the challenges in her life, her inspiration, her completion.
Savannah also inspired Savvy Design’s philosophy and mission. At Savvy Design they know that a gift is more than the thought, more than the cost, more than its’ beauty and more than the happiness it brings. The right gift can be strength for the weary, light at times of darkness, grace in times of desperation. The right gift is the human capacity to love, share and embrace those around us who we care for.
Beyond their quality, unique design and ability to match the perfect sentiment with the perfect person, Savvy is a reminder of the beauty of the human spirit and capacity for giving. For that reason Savvy has, since its’ inception, maintained a charitable aspect. Part of all Savvy Design’s success has always been matched to worthy causes. Savvy Design understands that the world is full of those who need gifts to make it through life, illness or financial hardship.

They ❤ the beach. It’s a passion that drives everything they do at The 30A Company. Inspired by a scenic highway that meanders along Florida’s Gulf Coast, 30A® isn’t just a line on the map. It’s a lifestyle; an attitude. It’s that happy place we all dream of when we need to unwind, unplug and celebrate life.
They ❤ the beach. That's why 30A dumpster diver shirts are made from recycled plastic bottles that could otherwise end up in our oceans. In fact, every shirt is made from eight 16-ounce plastic bottles collected from landfills. They're blended with cotton so they're unbelievably soft. Our recycled yarn is made in the U.S.A. and we print our shirts in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
We’re not just happy – we’re BEACH HAPPY!
