For any girl that surfs it’s so important for us to keep our skin protected from the harsh UV rays. We spend so many hours in the water a week it’s really important we get our face protection right.
There are so many products out there that can help us protect our skin, a few brands that come to mind are Surf Mud, Ella Bache, Vertra, Sun Bum but the one that seems to be recommended a lot at the moment is Shiseido.
Now, we did a little digging and we noticed that Shiseido is starting to partner up with some big names in professional surfing, like Sage Erickson and Lakey Peterson but it’s not only female surfers who are starting to rep the Shiseido range but male surfers too recently the skincare giant partnered with Kanoa Igarashi. It is also now the official skin care range of the WSL.
So here’s what we know about the Shiseido sunscreen:
The Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen is an invisible broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen with a ‘protective veil’ that becomes even more effective in heat and water. To us, that sounds perfect for surfers! But wait, it gets better! The sunscreen is also ocean friendly, so whilst keeping our skin protected from the sun we are also protecting our beloved ocean at the same time.
Shiseido is operating in 85 countries around the world and has just launched the “SHISEIDO BLUE PROJECT”, which globally conducts beach cleanup activities through sun care to protect the oceans. Shiseido has also partnered up with the World Surf League and will collaborate with WSL PURE which is WSL’s non-profit arm committed to ocean protection.
Pretty cool huh? A skin care range, committed to protecting the beautiful oceans that we as surfers spend so much time in.
So a little tip from us, WEAR SUNSCREEN and or ZINK. Whether it be a WSL endorsed product or a pro surfer recommended one if you stick to what the pro’s are wearing you can’t go too wrong.
And let’s remember it’s important that we all make our own individual impact to protect our ocean. Whether that be picking up any rubbish we see, making sure that we are using keep cups for our coffee or wearing sunscreen that is environmentally friendly. It’s the little things that make a big difference.
