Slather it A day at the beach may leave you with more than a healthy glow. Treat rosy sunburned skin to Burt's Bees after-sun soother. Made from antioxidant-rich linden extract, coconut oil, bee pollen and aloe, the rehydrating cream can be slathered on the face and body and quickly absorbs without leaving a greasy residue. $14.99, burtsbees.ca

Wear it Classic aviator chic gets an earthy makeover with Shwood's Ashland sunglasses. Handcrafted from sustainably harvested East Indian Rosewood, these all-natural shades have 100 per cent UVA/UVB protection through polarized lenses made by Carl Zeiss. Even though the frames are treated with a natural beeswax coating to protect the wood, it?s best to keep them out of the water and away from the campfire. $155 (U.S), shwoodshop.com

Top it The sun savvy, rain-repellent R7 Raffia Hat looks as cool as a Cuban fedora but has all the functionality of a classic Tilley. UPF 50+ protection is woven into the fabric, which means that 98 per cent of the sun's harmful rays are kept at bay. It also comes with a two-year insurance policy protecting against loss and it has the famous secret Tilley pocket. $95, tilley.com
