5 Ways to Protect Yourself from the Sun

5 ways to protect your skin from the sun

With crashing waves and the warm sun, it’s hard to not spend every available minute on the beach our out in the sun. And despite our need and want to worship the sun, we need to step back and make sure we’re protecting ourselves at the same time. The sun can not only burn us, but can do permanent damage – which can have long term consequences. Macy’s has a lot of great options for taking care of your skin including their “It List“. Their favorite products to help you protect yourself in the sun, while still looking fabulous. We love the list they put together, but picked five of our favorites to pick up and keep in our beach bags or purse for every day use!
