Cabana Life has become my new go-to brand for sun protective clothing! Gone are the days of basking in the sun, slathering baby oil on and trying to get my fair Irish skin as dark as possible. Now when I’m outside for prolonged periods, I try to take every measure to not only protect my skin with sunscreen, but also with what I wear.
Today I am excited to spotlight Cabana Life; sun protective beachwear and swimwear with built in UPF 50+. Plus, you can save 25% off site wide with Code: 4THOFJULY.
Be sure and scroll to the end of this post where I’m sharing my dermatologist approved sunscreens and the best 4th of July sales to take advantage of this weekend.
Cabana Life UPF 50+
I love learning how brands were born and the Cabana Life story is inspiring! Melissa and Alyssa were two friends living the life in Manhattan, working in the magazine industry when their eyes were opened by the dreaded C-word: CANCER. Melissa had a malignant melanoma diagnosis at age 26. They started looking for stylish sun protective options and realized they didn’t exist for themselves or their families. They didn’t want people to have to choose between fashion & function so they set out to create a new trend: sun protection that you actually WANT to wear, using only the highest rated UPF & most luxurious fabrics. Looking cute and keeping your skin safe has never been so effortless!
Headquartered in Dallas, Cabana Life fabrics are dermatologist approved, contain the HIGHEST rated UV protection that NEVER washes out, are breathable, wrinkle resistant and lightweight.
Cabana Life has dresses, swimwear and rash guards as well as a men’s line and kids line. I am absolutely in love with the fun prints and colors and can hardly make up my mind which piece I want to order next.
Navy/White Trim Terry Tunic – I’m absolutely obsessed with this nautical inspired tunic. Its the perfect cover-up for the beach, boat and pool, but it is equally perfect to run around town in. The UPF 50+ cotton/poly terrycloth is so soft that you’ll never want to take this off. For reference, I’m wearing a size SM.
Black Sleeveless Unisuit – I seriously feel like a ‘Bond Girl’ in this black swimsuit. It has just the right amount of coverage and a touch of sexiness! The gold hardware gives it an added edge. This suit also comes in navy and a colorful cabana stripe as well as a long sleeve version. For size reference, I’m wearing an XS.
Black Embroidered Cover-Up – This is such a fun cover-up with the navy tassels and beautiful embroidery up the front. I’ll be wearing this non-stop this summer because it goes with just about anything. Choose from several colors in this one too! For size reference, I’m wearing a S/M.
Black Off The Shoulder Dress – This black off the shoulder dress will be my new go-to with it’s multi function use! I can wear it to the beach or pool as a cover-up but its also perfect to wear dressed up for cocktails out or running around town. How precious are the tassels! I love it in the navy color way as well! As always, this dress will block up to 98% of the sun’s rays! For size reference, I’m wearing a Small.
This post wouldn’t be complete without sharing my must have DERMATOLOGIST APPROVED sunscreen arsenal! I’ve always loved the Elta MD products and never leave for vacation or sit poolside without my Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Body Spray and UV Daily SPF 40 Face Cream with hyaluronic acid. When I had a spring break trip to Grand Cayman planned, my dermatologist, Dr. Jennifer Cather, immediately made me order the Heliocare Skin Care Dietary Supplements and Isdin Broad Spectrum Mineral SPF 50 Sunscreen to protect my skin against the strong Caribbean sun. Dang Covid…didn’t go!
I use Skin Ceuticals Physical UV Defense SPF 30 EVERYDAY under my make-up. I don’t like to wear foundation in the hot summer months so I opt for Coola’s Mineral Face SPF 30 Matte Tint BB Cream. This is a light tint and it shields signs of aging and nourishes your skin with antioxidants plus you get a silky matte finish!
Have a fabulous weekend sweet friends!
