Summers are all about bright beach days and fun outdoor activities. To help you make the most of sunny season, here are some of the best summer products available on Amazon.com.au to help you stay cool, protected and have fun.
Bestselling sunscreens to protect yourself from UV rays
Did you know: the intensity of UV rays is highest during summer (though UV radiation is still present every day of the year)? UV rays put your skin at risk of sunburn and premature ageing, and increase your chances of skin cancer. To protect yourself, don’t leave home without sunscreen. On Amazon.com.au, you’ll find everything from stick sunscreen to lotions and mists from both trusted big brands and innovative small businesses. Prolonged high-risk sun exposure should be avoided. Frequent use and re-application of sunscreen in accordance with directions is required for effective protection. You should also use more than one form of sun protection—for example, protective clothing, hats and sunglasses.
All the sun hats you need to stay in the shade
Wearing a wide-brimmed sun hat doesn’t just help you channel your inner celebrity—it also keeps your face and neck protected from UV rays, your head cool, your hair moisturised and your hair colour from fading. From floppy hats and sun visors to foldable caps and bucket hats, there’s a version for every style in the link below.
Shower gels and body wash to help you feel refreshed
A quick shower with a rejuvenating shower gel or body wash like peppermint can help you feel cool and fresh. Peppermint contains menthol, which activates brain receptors that trigger a cool sensation in your body. Fun fact: Try a lukewarm shower for long lasting cooling effects (cold showers can actually shock the body into retaining heat).
Easy breezy outfits to stay cool in
Summer is all about staying comfy in soft tees, loose summer dresses, and breathable fabrics like linen. The best part? You’ll find all of these and more on Amazon.com.au, where you don’t have to step out in the heat to get what you need.
Swimming must-haves for lazy beach and pool days
One of the most fun parts about summer is picking out beachwear for the season, whether it’s for a beachside barbie with your mates or an after-work party by the pool. Need a kimono, sarong, bikini, one-piece suit or period swimwear? Amazon.com.au has you covered.
Roomy beach bags to hold every essential
Nothing sets you up for a great day out more than a spacious bag that can hold all your essentials and fun stuff, from beach towels and picnic mats to sunnies and snacks. We love options with specific pockets for smaller items like sunscreen and goggles, which have a tendency to mysteriously disappear in single-compartment bags. For parents, a beach tote can also double as a nappy bag post summer, with more than enough room to hold nappies, baby bottles and more.
Drinkwear so you can beat dehydration
According to a recent study, over 80% of Aussies don’t drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water a day, and 72% experience dehydration after a day in the sun. One of the smartest things you can do during summer is to take your H2O with you wherever you go, and there are now equally smartly designed water bottles and flasks that won’t look out of place on your office desk or at that outdoor yoga class. Check them out below.
Beach toys to make beach days even more fun
Give your kids the gift of hours of great summer memories with toys that make time at the beach or pool more fun and educational.
