You already know how to survive the summer heat in Lolita, right? But, are you prepared to deal with the sun whilst protecting your skin and Lolita pieces?
Excessive sun exposition can damage your skin, hair, health and clothing. Not only that, without proper protection, it can even increase the risk of skin cancer! But, as tempting as it could be, completely avoiding the sunlight and shutting yourself home isn’t a good idea for your health either.
So, in this summer, take some of the following tips into consideration and have a safer time under the sunlight!
Parasol, as the name implies, is a great alternative for your summer safety. Good quality parasols are made with materials that grant you some UV protection (Moitie’s Candelabra logo Umbrella, for example, blocks 95.6% of UV rays), and this is mandatory if you want to avoid the risk of getting a sunburn. Remember that you can always match your parasol with your coord, so consider these as good companions for your daily errands.
Why specifically a “straw hat”? Straw hats, as opposed to fabric and wool hats, are much more breathable and ideal for summery days. It will help you avoid direct sunlight on your face and head while preventing you from getting a heat stroke. These are also perfect for your sweet and country coords, so consider coordinating them with your cutest dress <3
Hand fans are your as-old-as-time summer companions. These are easy to carry in any bag, can match your coord, help sway insects away and look stylish as hell! So consider a nice variety of fans and wear them as any other accessory to compliment your coord.
UV-blocking sunglasses are very important for protecting your eyes and the thin skin around it. Not only that, you can also have these matching your coord in different shapes and frames.
And that’s it! <3 Remember to pack these next time you travel out for summer and enjoy a safe sunlight exposition ❤
