The sun goddess guru and mom-of-two splits her time between Honolulu, Hawaii and Venice Beach, California, where she designs her ultra-chic namesake line of bathing suits and caftans. With that much time spent alfresco, Malia definitely knows a thing or two about sun protection strategies—think easy-to-reapply-SPF and a wardrobe of wide-brimmed hats. We sat down with her in sunny California to get her surfer-approved tips.

Malia Jones: I surf almost every day. I throw on one suit in the morning, then I’ll go jump in the ocean. I’ll come home and change into another suit and work for a while. Then I’ll go back out and jump in the ocean again. I sometimes change into four different suits a day!
