The Fourth of July holiday is here!
Whether you're planning a stroll on the beach or a barbecue in the backyard this Fourth of July, we want you to feel Sol La La showing off your sun style, safe from dangerous UV rays.
Did you know, there are 3.5 million cases and more than 2 million people diagnosed every year with skin cancer, making it the most common form of cancer in the U.S.? Sol La La wants to take on those statistics with its sun-smart line of fashion styles.
This holiday, we invite you to to join our “sol sisters” in celebrating UV Independence from sea to shining sea with our fabulous styles and sun protection tips to help you enjoy a sun-safe July Fourth.
And, while we’re talking about America’s birthday, did you know Sol La La was born, and is made, in the U.S.A.?...just saying. :)
Happy Independence Day!
-The Sol La La Team
Sun Safety Tips
Accent and Accessorize. One of the most effective ways to prevent skin damage and skin cancer is by covering up with UPF protective clothing. Sol La La’s Sansol™ fabric blocks the sun’s damaging rays from reaching your skin while other fabrics allow those rays to penetrate the skin. Slip on a Sol La La style when you’re in the sun this weekend and flaunt your (fashion) independence knowing you are UV protected.
Don a hat with a brim. Wearing a hat with a wide brim protects the sides of your face and neck. Top off your sun style with a great floppy hat and big dark sunglasses - your eyes need UV protection, too.
Enjoy the shade. Try not to spend prolonged periods of time in direct sunlight. UV rays are especially strong between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Avoid sunburns. Sunburns increase the chance of skin cancer. In fact, five or more sunburns double your chance of skin cancer and they aren’t very stylish.
Apply sunscreen. Use broad spectrum sunscreen (UVA/UVB) with an SPF of 15 or higher every day, even under your makeup.
