Hello Summer Sun and Hello UV Protection
Time to start thinking about UV protection because summer is right around the corner - and so is that summer sun! We have been waiting all winter for the sun, good-bye cabin fever. Just being out side on a sunny day brings smiles to our faces, and playing out side for little ones can be a blast and make the day go by in a blink of an eye!
The sun is so fun, but it can be a little scary if we don't keep our uv sun protection on. SwimZip (www.swimzip.com) comes with a UV sun shirt that has UPF of 50+ (blocks 98% of UVA and UVB rays), an average shirt has a UPF rating of only 7. How scary. Our little ones can get harmful UV rays through their shirts. That is why SwimZip's are so great, you can wear them at the beach or pool while playing in the water, but you can also wear them at the park during extreme sun hours (10AM - 4PM). When the sun is the strongest that is when it is most important to keep sun protection on our little ones.
UPF 50+ swimwear and clothing makes UV sun protection so easy!
Hope you have fun at the park, on walks, and just playing in the front yard this summer! ENJOY (but make sure you keep that UV protection on from the sun)!
