We have the sunscreen argument frequently in my house – no one wants to be slathered with sticky lotion when they’re going to play outside if its cold, cloudy, or rainy. Whether the sun is shining or the clouds cover the sky, there are still harmful UV rays shining down on our Earth. Protect your skin from UV Rays with UPF50+ sunwear. We love UV Skinz hoodies and tights not only because they keep the littles warm, but they also protect their precious skin from UV rays.
When you live in New England you grow to understand there is such thing as a chilly summer day.
Even though today is the first day of summer, its gray, cloudy, and cool. If Annabelle and Ailey want to go outside to run around today, they can wear their favorite lightweight hoodie and leggings from UV Skinz. We spent the weekend in the Hamptons and even though it was in the 70s, they never complained of feeling chilly. These items are made with certified UPF 50+ breathable sun fabric that not only keeps them warm, but if temperatures do rise, they stay comfortable and cool.
Did you know 80% of the sun’s UV rays can penetrate clouds?
We apply sunscreen to the girls face, hands, and feet even when they’re wearing UPF50+ sun fabric on a cloudy day because every inch of their bodies should be protected. I will admit, it is easier on Mom and Dad knowing the covered parts are protected without sunscreen from the hidden sun’s rays.
One of the greatest features of UV Skinz pullover hoodies and swim pants is that they are chlorine and salt water resistant, as well as quick drying and lightweight. While camping in Montauk, NY, the girls were able to play in the rain and run on the beach without feeling weighed down. They could even swim in the ocean wearing these clothing!
FACT: It is possible to get sunburn through your clothing.
Protect your children (and yourself) from the sun’s harmful UV rays on a cloudy day by wearing UPF50+ sunwear from UV Skinz. There are a variety of items you can purchase for your family – from sun hats to swimwear ( I posted about this last year!), they have you covered.
