Protect Your Skin: Stylish UPF Clothing

Not too familiar with the term UPF? It’s a fairly new term that started coming around once companies began developing sun protection clothing. It is a voluntary term that companies can use. While covering your skin with clothing is helpful with blocking harmful UV rays that can lead to things such as sunburn, wrinkles, and even cancer, UPF clothing contains minimum levels of protection, 15, to higher levels of protection, 50. REI does a brilliant and detailed job of explaining the composition of sun protection clothing, as well as the science behind it if you want to check it out.

Swimwear That You Can Swim In!

Stylish swimwear that you can actually swim in? Um, yes, please! Don’t get us wrong, we love us some teeny bikinis and suits with unique cut-outs or embellishments, but some of those designs are best for lounging poolside, basking in the sand, or just dipping your toes in the water. With the wrong suit, a simple dive into the water can wash your bottoms away or cause a nip slip. Sometimes, we just need something that will support and stay put so that we can actually do some swimming and partake in water sports. See some chic options that will stay kaput!     Seea Milos Reversible Top, $80 Seea Milos Reversible Bottoms, $70 The thicker straps on the top and bottom will keep this two-piece set in place.

Soothe Your Skin With Sheet Masks

  Weekly face masks have always been high up in our skincare routine to help with clear and smooth skin. Lately, we’ve loved incorporating face sheet masks into our routine. They may make us look a bit funny, but there is no denying that draping that soothing sheet across our faces makes us not only feel more relaxed (think at-home spa treatment), but our skin ends up feeling so soft when we remove the material. Keep in mind that there is no need to stock up on just one type of sheet mask. After all, your skin can change throughout the month depending on the food you have been eating, alcohol you have been consuming, the weather, room conditions, hormones, and even your sleep habits. Purchase a...

Cruelty-Free Korean Beauty Products

We are 100% on the Korean beauty bandwagon. BUT, we do have to admit that it has been quite hard finding brands that are considered to be cruelty free.
