Wear Sunscreen! From the inspirational words of Baz Luhrmann, everybody’s free to wear sunscreen, Salt Water Gift Shop has the right sun protection for you. From natural ingredients to name brand products, we carry deep tanners, oils, bronzers and lotions, many that protect from both UVA and UVB light. Even on cloudy days as well as in the heat of the Galveston sun, apply sunscreen frequently and thoroughly to avoid burning. Consider a water-resistant sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, especially when swimming in the beach. Reapply as recommended per the instructions (usually every two hours on the shore and every 40-80 minutes when in the water). As Baz says, “Trust me on the sunscreen.”
