Sun protection is extremely important to me as a football coach to stay safe in the sun. We are outside conditioning all summer long in the Louisiana sun. It can be brutal. It is very humid in the south and sweat easily washes off the typical sunscreen. Wearing protective clothing provides the additional protection I need to feel comfortable in the sun without the worry of skin cancer.
One sunny morning last week, Coolibar employees got up early, grabbed their gear and made the three-hour journey from Minneapolis to Crosslake, Minnesota to attend Camp Discovery. This one-week summer camp for kids with chronic skin conditions is operated by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), and encompasses five such summer camps across the country.
It’s time to show off your summer and yourself in Coolibar sun protective clothing. And you could win a $100 Coolibar shopping spree!- Take a selfie of you, your friends and family enjoying your summer, looking great and staying safe from the sun in Coolibar clothing

We’ve talked to a LOT of people about this. They think the Coastline Cover Up Dress looks okay on an expensive, skinny model. But when they put it on themselves – BOOM. They love it. We don’t know anyone who owns the Coastline Cover Up Dress that doesn’t love it. Everyday girls love it. Bloggers love it, too. What’s going on here?
World Vitiligo Day is a public initiative aimed at building global awareness about vitiligo (pronounced: vit-til-EYE-go). The Vitiligo Research Foundation launched a website and an online petition, aimed at the United Nations, to highlight vitiligo and officially designate June 25 as World Vitiligo Day annually. The petition needs 500,000 signatures. It’s almost there!
By Valerie Stewart: Snowboarding is the sport that makes me feel truly alive. I’m fully present when flying down a mountain on a race course, or carving powder in the trees. My thoughts are not cluttered or stuck in past or future; I am completely in the moment. For me, snowboarding creates an ideal state of mind.
