IF you plan to spend any time outdoors in the hot weather, make sure you protect yourself and loved ones from too much sun.
It is especially important for children and pets, who are more at risk of sunstroke.
Check out these cool deals I have found to help you cover up.
UNDER MY UMBRELLA: Planning a trip to the seaside or the park? Make sure you pack your own shade in case you can’t find any while out.
Portable umbrellas with side panels give the best protection from the sun and also double as windshields on breezy days. Decathlon has a two-person beach parasol for £29.99. It opens like an umbrella and has removable sides.
Or head to Argos, where the Sun Shelter with SPF50 protection is £18 — and also big enough for two. It might take slightly longer to put up, but is a great cheaper option if you are watching the pennies.
NOT SO HOT DOGS: Create shade for your four-legged friend with the Jackson Pet Co heat resistant dog tent, which is down from £25.99 to £12.99 at Mountain Warehouse.
Wilko has the chillax cooling pet mat for £8.
KEEP A COOL HEAD: Don’t let the heat get to your head, with great deals on bucket hats at New Look. It has a wide range of styles for half price at £5. Or for a different look, Asos has the Boardmans wide-brim straw hat with pink stitching, down from £20 to £8.50.
SUNNIES DELIGHT: Beat the glare with some great discounts on sunglasses. At Asos, the retro-look Madein round shades in sheer brown are half price at £5.
New Look’s red oversized rectangle sunglasses are down from £9.99 to £5.99.
