Sunscreen || We take skin health seriously at Soapwalla. Sun protection is key and Josh Rosebrook’s SPF is no joke. We keep reaching for this one again and again to protect our face, while this from Coola is particularly effective for protecting our bodies.

Shelter from the (sun) Storm || A catnap in the shade is the perfect way to cap off a day at the beach. Shade not only keeps you cool but allows you to relax without waking with a painful sunburn. This colorful beach shade is our top pick and will let you continue your outdoor fun long after you need a break from the sun! 

Cover Ups || Lightweight coveralls are essential in the summer heat. We adore the Milo, Kate, and Gary jumpsuits by Ilana Kohn. They are great transitional pieces, making it easy to go from the beach to dinner, dancing and beyond! If you’re feeling more vibrant, this jumpsuit available here comes in a rainbow of shades, one for every day of the week!

Incognito || We LOVE hats at the Soapwalla studio. They are not only a chic and functional accessory during the summer months but they cover day old hair on and off the sand. These hats have SPF built in for extra protection … just the first reason we love them. 

Homemade Post-Sun Soothers ||

  • For Body || Mix equal parts distilled water and aloe vera juice in a spray bottle (this is a great way to reuse our Toning Mist bottles!). Take a break from the sun, pop in a movie like Wet Hot American Summer and relax while you spray away the sting and soothe your skin!
  • Avocado Hair Mask || ½ avocado (use one that is overripe so it does not go to waste!); 1-3 tablespoons of full fat plain unsweetened yogurt (We like Anita’s Coconut Vegan Yogurt); 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice – if you have undyed hair. Mash everything together and apply for 20 minutes. Wash hair as normal.
