If you think sunglasses and sunblock are sufficient onboard artillery in the battle against skin cancer, think again. Coolibar, the maker of affordable sun-protective clothing items and accessories for men, women and children, and Johnson & Johnson, maker of Acuvue Oasys contact lenses with ultra-violet ray blocking abilities, have teamed up to spread the word that there are more products available to keep you safe on those long days on the water.
From Coolibar comes a sturdy floppy hat with a broad rim that rolls up for easy stowing. The Shapeable Travel Sun Hat, lightweight and constructed from breathable fabric, includes a moisture-wicking terry sweatband. It comes in an array of colors and costs $45.
Acuvue Oasys contact lenses block approximately 96 percent of UV-A rays and greater than 99 percent of UV-B rays that reach the cornea, according to Johnson & Johnson. Although these lenses provide added protection, they should always be worn in conjunction with high-quality UV-blocking sunglasses. Prices vary.
Now that you’ve done what you’re supposed to do when you’re out in the sun, do what you want to do: Cool off with a sip of the Skinny Freezers Cocktails from Slim Chillers. The frozen martinis are available in flavors like green apple and lemon drop and have 100 calories each.
