With the temperatures hitting annual highs this month, many of us do find the summer heat and sunshine a bit too intense. And even though we want to get out and enjoy the sun on the rare days that it shows in this country, many of us do find it a bit oppressive, especially around midday. Not only that, with UV rays having a direct effect on skin ageing and burning, as well as the potential for longer term skin-damage, it is important that we protect ourselves from too much sun exposure.
With this in mind, we thought we would take a look at some of the gorgeous parasols and sun umbrellas
that we have available this season at Brolliesgalore. We have selected a range of different styles, patterns, and materials, but each of these products is designed to shield you from the sun, while also protecting you from UV exposure
. Not only that, the direct shade that these provide will ease the temperature a little, meaning that you can get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather without feeling uncomfortable in the summer heat, leaving you cool, calm and collected!
N.B. It is advised that you still continue to use sun block on sunny days, even with these parasols & sun umbrellas.

is a stylish UV Protective Lightweight folding Umbrella that has a silver-coloured opaque outer layer which reflects sunlight away, while the Pink coloured opaque underside stops the rays from bouncing back up from the ground, protect your upper body and face. This will provide shelter from both the sun's rays and the sun's heat, allowing you to remain cool on those warm days. What's more is that this umbrella is also fully waterproof, so will work all year round as both an umbrella and parasol.
