About: UV Skinz sun protectiveswimshirts are stylish and carry a UPF rating of 50+, which blocks out over 98% of the sun’s harmful rays, protecting delicate skin from damaging sunburns. Sunscreen isn’t always enough, is often not used correctly and some folks have skin allergies or sensitivities to chemicals that sunscreens can contain. UV Skinz are sun shirts that are not made with any chemicals or lotions. The UV protection is in the tight weave of the fabric. Wearing UV protective clothing, such as our fun, cool UV Skinz sun protective swim shirts, is an important step in preventing sunburns, premature aging of the skin and skin cancer.
When I was younger, my friends slathered themselves with baby oil to bake in the sun. I was the one with fair skin who got teased for using “total” block out SPF 8 and still got burned.
Fortunately, we now know a lot more about sun damage and we have a lot more options when it comes to sun protection.
UV Skinz sunblock clothing is a practical and stylish way to protect the whole family. The clothing can be worn for active sports and other activities where you’ll be exposed to the sun.
It seems like most parents have gotten the message that baby and child skin needs to be protected. But it’s not at all uncommon to see parents cover up their kids and then leave themselves unprotected.
UV Skinz has really cute clothing for the little ones. And they also have stylish options for adults and teens.
The Matt Collared shirt for men is fantastic! It looks like a regular shirt, but offers the added benefit of UV protection. It can be worn in the water and also for other times when you’ll be outdoors – picnics, golf, hiking, gardening …. This shirt can easily go from indoor to outdoor use. It looks as good with khakis or jeans as it does in the swimming pool.
The fabric is smooth and comfortable. It’s a bit heavier feeling than a regular t-shirt, but the silky texture feels cool even in direct sun. We like this shirt best in black, but it’s also available in steel grey and navy. Sizing was accurate for us.
UV Skinz is a stylish and easy way to protect your entire family from the damage that the sun can cause – sun burns, premature aging and skin cancer.
