Sun Safe Swimwear and Other Tips
Every year, as the summer sun rises in salutation, we flock to faraway coastlines so that we can bask in its glory for days on end. The sun is a life-giving symbol of vibrance, energy, vivacity and hope for new days. It wards off negative energy from downcast days with fog, dark storms, and frigid winds. The sun lights the earth, allowing you to see clearly into the world and all its grandeur. Embrace the clarity of mother nature’s light source, soaking up its healing energy today.
Time in the sun is good for you
Improves Mental Health and Mood
Sunlight can boost a hormone in your body called serotonin, otherwise known as the happy hormone. It can energise you as well as keep you calm, happy and stabilised. This can explain why certain people, perhaps yourself, suffer from seasonal affective disorder, whereby one is increasingly depressed during Autumn and Winter where there is less sunlight.
Helps Skin Conditions
According to the World Health Organisation, skin conditions like Psoriasis and Eczema can benefit from sunrays. This is because the light exposure can lighten and fade your psoriasis plaques, and because the sun assists in the production of vitamin D, a hormone which helps you fight inflammation.
Boosts Immune System
The UV rays from the sun help you naturally make the Vitamin D nutrient, which is important for strengthening your bones, blood cells and immune system. You can reduce the risk of sickness, infection, and some cancers with a healthier immune system.
Better Quality Sleep
Research suggests that your sleep will improve with an hour of sunlight each morning. When it’s dark, your body produces a hormone called melatonin that is imperative for quality sleep. Getting more sun exposure regulates your body's production of this hormone, as you perceive light and dark more distinctly, keeping you from getting tired during the day and helping you get more tired at night when you should sleep.
Too much sun time can be bad
The sun is the earth’s primary source of energy, light and heat. But most of us know by now, too much exposure to direct sunlight can be harmful or even dangerous for us. There are more negatives to overexposure to the sun than just bad sunburn. Read below to find out about them!
Contributing Factor to Skin Cancers
The sun’s UV rays are a form of radiation. Overexposure to radiation can damage DNA in our cells, leading them to grow out of control and mutate into cancer cells. For more than 5-10 minutes of direct sun exposure, it is recommended you use radiation-blocking methods (read on to find out about these).
Too much time in the sun can quickly dehydrate your body. In its early stage, you’ll start to notice you’re fatigued. This is when you should seek shade and plenty of water to rejuvenate and refresh your body. If you don’t do this, you’ll overheat and get heatstroke. Heatstroke includes symptoms of hot, dry skin, high body temperature, dizziness, confusion, and nausea. Avoid this uncomfortable condition at all costs by knowing your body’s limits with the sun!
Just like your skin, the sun can damage the cells within your eyes. This happens more progressively over time, so people often neglect to protect their eyes, thinking that nothing is wrong. Combat this by finding adequate eye protection and sun safety techniques.
If you are out in the sun all day, every day with no sun protection, the UV radiation accelerates the deterioration of collagen and skin elasticity, leaving you with more wrinkles and sunspots at an earlier age.
Most people have experienced at least a mild sunburn at some point in their lives. And most would say a mild sunburn was enough for them. Overexposure to the sun can inflame your skin and leave it painful to even a light touch. Following from bad sunburns is peeling of the skin that is dead from overexposure. Sunburn is all-round uncomfortable so avoid it with some easy-to-do tips and tricks. Read below to find out!
Tips to protect your skin in the sun
Below are some tips and tricks you can integrate into your summer routine for a safer, more pleasurable time in and around the water.
Regular Breaks in the Shade
If you can find natural shade at the beach or on your brisk summer walk, make sure to use it. However, we recommend purchasing products that you can carry with you anywhere and use as shade when none is available, like beach tents, umbrellas, and sunhats. While these were once perceived as clunky and unfashionable, you can now find many cute and stylish items online. Have a search and see what you like!
It is a non-negotiable to have at least SPF30 on you whenever you’re in the sun for prolonged periods of time. It is such a simple yet effective method that can save you from the worst of sun damage like getting skin cancer. There are wide ranges of different sunscreen now so take your pick and protect your delicate skin.
Drinking Plenty of Water and Staying Hydrated
We need h2o to survive in general but especially so in the sun. You can combat a lot of symptoms that come from overheating just by carrying a water bottle with you and taking regular sips.

Following Your Intuition
This is an important one because everyone’s body is different. Some people are built to withstand the sun better than others, so you need to take time to figure out where your limit is and what you need when out under sunlight. Your precious body will thank you later.
Sunsafe Swimwear and Beach Covers!
Sunsafe swimwear and beach covers are a no brainer! They are fashionable, durable and help keep you safe for prolonged periods in the sun. Nip Tuck Swim features several flattering, vibrant and fashionable sunsafe swimsuits for women of all shapes and sizes. We provide a luxurious range with varying sleeves lengths and body coverage that will certainly cater to your style preferences and sun protection needs.
But what about for when you’re done swimming in crystalline waters and want to be dry and still protected? Look no further than Nip Tuck Swim’s resort wear range, with kaftans, dresses and sarongs that match your swimwear and keep you shaded from the sun in style. Lightweight fabrications are used with our resort wear so that you can get the best of sun protection while still feeling a cool breeze on your skin.

Nip Tuck Swim’s sunsafe swimwear collection features classic silhouettes that are made with a wide range of chic and vibrant prints that speak to your personality. We also offer sunsafe swimwear that often has a matching tummy control one-piece swimsuit, slimming tankini or two-piece bikini set.
