Spring Into Any Season With Fashion And Sunglasses

TIPS AND TRICKS  |  DEC 20, 2022


Warm and sunny days mean more time outside. While you are attending functions, outdoor adventures, parties, and more, you want to ensure your skin does not suffer. In this article, we will take a look at some fashion essentials that need to have space in your travel or tote bag, as well as tips on how to ensure you are perfectly packed for that beach, pool or outdoors day. Plus, we will tell you where to find them. 

Get Your Skin Essentials

If you will be spending your day or days in the sun, you need to be prepared. And what better way to do that than with a little (or a lot of) SPF?! The sun protection factor (SPF) measures a sunscreen's capacity to shield users from a particular UVB wavelength of light. Sunburns and skin cancer are caused by UVB radiation. Other types of UV light include UVC rays, which are blocked by the earth's atmosphere, and UVA rays (which are also responsible for skin cancer as well as skin ageing). Broad-spectrum sunscreen will shield you from UVB and UVA rays, so ensure that you get to Canal Walk Shopping Centre for sunscreen, lotions, and other skincare products that will help protect you from sunburn. 

Shade Yourself 

Invest in good shade. By this, we mean consider buying a garden umbrella or a tent, depending on how much shade space you need. Invest in quality hats, and lucky for you, Canal Walk’s Cotton On has a range of designs and colours that will have you looking fashionable while protecting yourself. 

If you are looking for breathable sports or swimwear, consider coming down to Canal Walk’s Sportscene, and shop a range of sports, outer, as well as swimwear from brands such as Nike, Adidas, Puma, Reebok, etc. 

Keep A Strong Shoe Game 

Whether you are running, hiking, walking, or taking a stroll at the beach, you need the right shoes. Come on over to Canal Walk’s Crocs, Birkenstock, and Asics, where you will find options from sandals to crocs to running shoes. If there is someone in your life who has a special day coming up, you can visit Crocs and get them a pair of sandals with Jibbitz Charms. Make your favourite pair of Crocs even more unique by adding your own touches! Dads can add Jibbitz of their favourite sports, moms can put jewels, and your kids can add Jibbitz of their favourite characters. Even a flag from your preferred global location or LGBTQIA+ alliance can be added. 

Future And Sun Too Bright? We’ve Got You 

Eye specialists advise that if we expose our eyes to bright sunlight for too long, we are at risk of developing sun-related eye diseases. Cataracts, pterygium, glaucoma, and macular degeneration can start inflicting damage in your eyes if you don't wear the right sunglasses. So, stop by Canal Walk and visit Ray-Ban, Sunglass Hut, and Falco Milano to shop sunglasses for you and your loved ones.

Remember To Stay Hydrated 

Do not even think about leaving the house without some hydration. Ensure that you always pack water, juice, and if possible, some ice in a cooler box will come in handy when it gets a bit too hot. We know how sweltering South Africa’s heat can get. Consider freezing fruit as well and making it into ice lollies for the little ones, and if you like, freeze orange juice into ice cubes and enjoy with your favourite liquor during those backyard poolside chilling days. Canal Walk has stores for you to shop groceries and essentials that will make your hot days feel like a breeze. 

Final Words, Have Fun 

Use the time you spend outdoors to do something new and fun. Try a hobby, visit a beach you’ve never been to before, and maybe even host a pool party. Invest in the right skin, eye and body care, and you will be cruising through the warmer and colder seasons with ease. Plus, Canal Walk has your back when it comes to your essentials.
