 Honey Girl Organics Top 5 Tips for Fun in the Sun:

            1.         ☀️ Make Sunscreen Your Bestie - Here at HGO we opt for all things natural and safe for the body, which means this year we’ll be throwing in our Protect stick to our summer totes! This is formulated with 20% uncoated, reef-safe, non-nano zinc-oxide, which makes the Protect Stick an effective broad-spectrum defense against both UVA and UVB rays. It creates a physical barrier on the skin's surface, and because of this it is effective immediately upon application and is less likely to cause skin sensitivity or allergic reactions.

2.         ⏰ Timing Is Key - Understanding the sun’s strength throughout the day is an important factor! The hours of stronger sunlight are typically between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM (be sure to check for your specific location), so avoiding major plans between these hours will ensure you have a safer time outdoors. 

            3.         👚👖👗 Think Of Your Clothes As Protection - Wear the cute outfits you’ve been planning all year, but don’t forget to pop a cover-up, hat, and light layers into your bag. Covering your skin, especially during peak hours is the smartest way to stay outdoors by soaking up the fun, and not the sun! 

            4.         👂Listen To Your Body - Feeling tired? Is a headache creeping up on you? These are all small signs that you might have had too much sun exposure and can be dehydrated. It’s best to listen to your body and take a cue that it’s time to head indoors, rehydrate, and relax for a bit.

            5.         🧴After Sun Protection - We tend to focus on sunscreen as a prep for heading outdoors but caring for your skin afterwards is key for maintaining healthy skin this season. Show your body some TLC with our After Sun Face & Body Lotion, crafted with a calming fusion of botanicals like organically grown aloe vera and organic honey. This nourishing blend will revive and moisturize your skin after exposure to the sun!
With Honey Girl Organics, sun lovers can rejoice in knowing they can have the most action-packed summer and still take excellent care of their skin.
