One thing that will always stay true and constant about UV Skinz swim shirts is that our products block 98% of both UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are the rays that cause sunburns, contribute the most to the development of skin cancer and are stronger during peak hours of the day, but UVA rays can penetrate glass and remain the same strength all year long. Both contribute to premature wrinkling, freckling, and hyper-pigmentation.
Slipping on a UV Skinz swim shirt is so much easier, cost-effective and safer than having to worry about reapplying sunscreen every few hours. Not reapplying regularly is one mistake that most people make when only using sunscreen as apart of their sun protection routine. All UV Skinz swim shirts have a UPF of 50+. So, there is no need to reapply. Just remember to reapply sunscreen to the exposed body parts, especially your face, neck and ears.
I just read an article from MSNBC that explains how misleading sunscreen claims can be harmful to the consumers who haven’t educated themselves on the subject. You may think you are purchasing a sunscreen that protects you from both UVA and UVB rays, but it may only protect you from UVB. That is pretty shocking! Look for the sunscreens that say broadspectrum and get yourself a UV Skinz to be fully protected.
