You can only imagine how happy I was to be able to spend some time on the beach, on Long Beach (California). When you live in a place where there isn’t so much sun and where you only have sun once a week, you feel the difference when you have an opportunity to fully enjoy it.
As I love the sun so much, I need a special care during sun exposure. Sunlight helps your body to produce vitamin D but it’s also crucial to avoid being unprotected during sun exposure. Drinking enough water and using a sunscreen is necessary before we go out in to the sun. We all know it but how many of us really do it?
I think if we want to fully enjoy the sun we need sun protection. Vitamin D is important, it’s also a hormone your body produces under the influence of light.
Some studies suggest that using sunscreen for the sun protection doesn’t interfere with your body’s ability to produce vitamin D, the others show that vitamin D can’t be produced. Who really knows the truth? As soon as we come to know one rule, somebody will come up with another exceptions.
We all need sun exposure but we also need to be cautious.
sunglasses → Polette
beachwear → Vertigo USA
shorts → Guess
bikini → Bruno Banani
My family and I all have pretty fair skin, so we have to use sun protection. I feel like even with sunscreen we get an adequate amount of Vitamin D, but what do I know? 🙂 I visited Long Beach not very long ago and it was a beautiful place!
I got burnt really badly in Cambodia! But I’m also deficient in vitamin D. Will have to give this brand a try instead.
I need to be extra cautious, due to my super pale skin. Should give this a try! Anyway, amazing pictures and outfit.
Great tips for staying protected against the sun, I always seem to forget these tips and suffer the consequences later, hopefully I’ll learn this time.
I burn pretty easily without sunscreen so I have to be super careful. I love the pictures with all of the birds.
I think taking care of your skin is super important. I love being on the beach so sunscreen is very important. I love Long Beach!
I think that it is important to always use sunscreen even on days where its not warm because it helps protect your skin.
Always wanted to visit Cali, I can only dream! You look fantastic in the last picture! I agree with you that sunscreen is so important, you can never tell how damaging the sun is to your skin.
im going on holiday soon, and yeah as you said is very important to use sun protection. I wish i could visit cali too.
looks like a fun place to go… seriously, who doesn’t like the beach by the ocean?! that’s the only thing missing in MN
I can’t leave the house in the warmer months without sunscreen. Being so fair I just burn. I cringe when I see friends that don’t use it.
I have to wear sunscreen I am so fair skinned and now after living in Norway for the past year it is even worse.
I am quite lucky that I don’t burn that quick because I hate being out in the sun too long x
California is such a pretty state. I want to visit so bad. Thanks for the suggestion for the sunscreen product, must needed in this period of the year 🙂
Ugh, I’m so lazy to put on sunscreen whenever I’m on the beach. But I do end up regretting it, since I’m end up being the darkest person in the family. haha!
Ugh, I’m so lazy to put on sunscreen whenever I’m on the beach. But when I get home after a trip, I immediately regret it, especially after seeing how white my entire family is compared to me. Haha
Sun screen is so important! I burn so quickly so leaving the house without it on really isnt an option for me.
Going to the beach is also rare for us but when we do get to go we make the most of it.
Love to spend time by the beach but yes, too much sun isn’t good. Never heard of this sunscreen before, should look it up. Cute coverup.
