Yes, it’s summertime and the livin’ is easy. But, sun is strong. While we absolutely promote venturing outside, having a #daylife, and getting your daily intake of natural Vitamin D, we’ll also tell how you to stay safe during those sun-soaked days in South Beach and Central Park. After all, we’re here to help.


Wear natural sunscreen.

The best way to keep your skin safe from the sun is to apply sunblock. Since most chemical-laden sunscreens are actually harmful for your body and the environment, we recommend choosing a natural sunscreen. For a comprehensive list of safe sunscreens, check out EWG’s 2016 Guide and find one that fits your needs.


Be smart — and chic — in a hat.

Don a stylish sun hat for extra protection. We love a summery straw fedora or floppy sun hat. Pair with trendy aviators or round retro sunglasses for effortlessly cool beach style.


Seek out shade.

When the sun is at its peak — usually between 10:00am and 3:00pm — it’s best to find some shade to limit exposure. Reduce the risk of sunburn and picnic under a tree in Central Park or sip a refreshing drink under a cabana at 1 Hotel South Beach. We promise you’ll be glad you did. 

To minimize the use of plastic in your own life, look around your home and work to identify plastic items. From there, seek to find alternatives.
