    Best Kids Rash Guard Swimwear with SPF 50+ — rashguard shirts for toddlers

    Toddler Rash Guard

    When shopping for toddlers it is so important to find something they want to wear.  Rash guards can be extremely 'sticky' when went and extremely hard to get off.

    So - we created SwimZip - Rash Guards that come off with one quick zip.  You might be worried if the zipper would bug them, but don't you worry - I'm a mom of 2 boys and I thought the same thing - so I created a zipper flap that lays flat and protects their precious skin from getting rubbed with our zipper.  

    Kids even feel so comfortable it could be their PJs and head to the beach straight from waking up - and have donuts on the beach.  Okay, maybe that is a little far, my son still loves his footed PJs, but I might be able to convince him to wear his SwimZip.

     

    Kids enjoy playing in the sand with our longer length shirts, so there is no extra sun exposure on their backs.  We offer rash guards and rash guard sets for both boys and girls!

    Skin Cancer Awareness Month - May

    When was the last time you had your skin checked by a Dermatologist? I'm sitting here feeling a bit guilty as I type this because I have so many spots that I need to get checked ASAP, but I keep putting it off. Are you like me in that you hope it's nothing other than a new mole or birthmark you hadn't noticed?  

    I'd like to share a few facts with you about Melanoma that really opened my eyes... 

    -Melanoma is the fifth most common cancer for males and seventh most common for females.

    -Women aged 39 and under have a higher probability of developing melanoma than any other cancer except breast cancer. 

    -Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is a proven human carcinogen.

    -More people develop skin cancer because of tanning than develop lung cancer because of smoking. 

    -People who first use a tanning bed before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 percent.

    -More than 90 percent of the visible changes commonly attributed to skin aging are caused by the sun.

    -Each year in the US, nearly 5 million people are treated for skin cancer. In 2006, in the most recent study available, 3.5 million cases were diagnosed in 2.2 million people.

    -One person dies of melanoma every hour (every 57 minutes).

    -1 in 50 men and women will be diagnosed with melanoma of the skin during their lifetime.

    -The vast majority of mutations found in melanoma are caused by ultraviolet radiation.

    Those facts are pretty scary, aren't they? We will be spending the month of May sharing stories of Skin Cancer and Melanoma survivors from around the globe. If you know someone who has suffered from this type of cancer, please email us: Melinda @ swimzip . com

    Betsy will also be sharing her story of being diagnosed with Skin Cancer in her twenties. 

    Please protect your skin. We are in this business because we want to make it easy for you to stay sun safe. It is also our duty as parents to keep our babies sun safe and help them to avoid hearing those terrifying words..."it's cancer..." 

    xoxo
