Ahhhhhhhh…..Summer. The warm air all around, fluffy white clouds floating by, and the smell of sunshine on your skin….*sniff sniff* Uh-oh. Yep. I did it again. Burnt.
I love summer, and I love the sun! Especially being from the north, when the sun comes out during the summer months we are outside as often as possible, which is amazing, and also presents a problem.
I am very fair skinned. I’ve always had this peachy-porcelain skin and while it’s beautiful, it burns easily. And not feel the burn in a good way people, feel the burn as is oh-my-gosh-I-was-in-the-sun-for-twenty-minutes-and-now-I’m-red-as-a-tomato-and-in-excruciating-pain kind of burn. And although my skin seems to have toughened up a bit as a I grow older, I still have to be careful not to burn.
Then again, we all need to be careful not to burn. Did you know that getting sunburnt just once every two years can triple your risk of melanoma skin cancer -um yikes! Skin cancer is a very real threat friends, I think a lot of times we take for granted our soft firm skin and treat it poorly. And did you know that the more you expose your skin to the UV rays from the sun to more you are speeding up the natural aging process of your skin? Hello early wrinkles and sunspots!
So what’s a girl to do? I want to be outdoors with my kids, I want to experience the benefits of the Vitamin D that the sun offers, but at the same time I don’t want to die of skin cancer or look like a grandma before my time…Ya hear me?
Enter Shedo Lane (pronounced Shade-o Lane).
Light, airy, stylish, and blocks 50% of the sun’s harmful UV rays!? It doesn’t get any better than that. As someone who burns easily and hates sunscreen (mainly because it is toxic and does just as much harm as good), this clothes is literally a God send; and did I mention how soft it is? Oh. My. Gosh. Like they told me it was soft, but really, really!? You’ll feel like you touched a piece of a cloud when you experience your Shedo Lane clothing for the first time!
And let’s not even talk about how cute it is! They have dresses and cute shirts for me, t-shirts for my son and husband to run around in, and the cutest little swing dress for my daughter. We’re talking fashion that is affordable, beyond comfortable, and is going to help protect me from skin cancer causing sun rays…Pretty sure I’m going to live in this forever.
