    How to stay safe from sun burns - SwimZip

    Having a blast at the beach means NO MORE SUNBURNS.  Sunburns hurt the day you get them, can hurt for a few days after, and did you know just a few bad sunburns can lead to skin cancer??

    After being diagnosed with skin cancer at 26, I started SwimZip! I wanted to be sure I could keep my boys sun safe... and fashionable!  Here is an adorable SwimZip called Hamptons Getaway in Green!

     So, SwimZip was born.  It is for all kids, all women, all men, it is for everyone every age, race, color ... everyone.  "Anyone can get skin cancer. Skin cancer does not care what color your skin is, what political affiliation you have, what religion you are,” said Dr. Adam Friedman of Montefiore Medical Center in New York.

    So, here is one of my favorite outfits for my boys when we are heading to the beach to just play in the sand.  How do you dress your kids when you're heading to the beach?

    We love this I Like Naps Romper and Apple Cheeks Swim Diaper!  Green Day at the beach.

     

     

    Kids Sun Hat - SwimZip

    I love being out side with my boys!  I love playing at the park, chalk in the driveway, digging for worms (maybe not too much, but it's fun), eating ice cream, splashing in the ocean, riding bikes, the list goes on.  I'm just an outdoors person (winter is SO hard for me)!  Anyways, if you ever see any of my photos you will see that my kids do NOT go outside without a sun hat.  Why?  Being diagnosed with skin cancer at 26, I have learned my lesson.  Sun hats ALL the time, and sun screen.  Kids can get a lot of vitamin D from food you give them, and also sun screen wears off and they will get some sun. So for me keeping them sun safe is #1 and it starts with wearing a hat daily. 

    For me a good sun hat is everything.  SwimZip now offers Sun Hats which have a UPF 50+ protection in the fabric.  Not all hats provide this type of sun protection.  Also, we have a wide brim that provides extra sun protection around the face and back of the neck.  It is also ADJUSTABLE!  It's awesome!  It really can fit any head perfectly.  We have colors for boys and girls!  Here is the red hat - these are unisex so you can go gender neutral or gender specific!  

     

    So, again why not make an outfit out of this one!  I love seeing how outfits come together.  

    We love rocking our SwimZip war by the beach and also in daily life!  Here is our red Hat and Board Shorts yellow shorts

    Melanoma Awareness Month Sun Protection Tips

    May is  Melanoma Awareness Month and How to Be a Redhead has some great sun protection tips!  Skin cancer is the leading form of cancer and fair skinned people can be particularly susceptible to cancer causing UV rays.  Getting protected with sun protection swimwear and clothing - like SwimZip swimsuits - is a must! [caption id="attachment_83" align="aligncenter" width="625"]uv protection Many melanomas can be prevented with UV protection swimwear and clothing with UPF 50+.[/caption] SwimZip sun protection swimsuits and sun protection clothing features UPF 50+ UV protection from the sun, blocking 98% of UVA and UVB rays.  Our stylish designer swimsuits are perfect for kids who want to look good and be protected from the sun.  Remember, the pool and beach are particularly intense UV environments, and UV exposure builds up over time.  Too much UV exposure as a child can lead to skin cancers - including melanoma - later in life!
