UV sun protection for kids can be tough. Children are always on the go, and who has time (or patience!) to reapply sunscreen? As parents, we know UV sun protection for kids is extremely important, but we also know it is such a chore!!! People get the majority of their sun exposure under the age of 18 years, so trying to keep them UV sun safe is a must. Here are 5 tips to keep kids sun safe while playing outside in the sun this summer. 5. Reapply sunscreen every 1-2 hours while outside in the sun (even if it is overcast). 4. Put on a UV sun shirt or UPF 50+ swimsuit, this way you won’t have to worry about applying sunscreen under the swimsuit or shirt (we love SwimZip UV swimsuits for kids). 3. If playing in the water, apply sunscreen 30 minutes before you start enjoying the water. And remember, the beach and pool are particularly UV intense environments because the UV rays bounce off the water and sand. Sun protection for kids is extremely important here! 2. Wear a sun hat that contains UV protection, this way you are blocking rays from the children’s face (UV Girls Hats and UV Boys Hats). 1. Stay hydrated! Drinking water can help kids enjoy their time and not get as tired and cranky while playing outside! And that means more fun for everyone! ;-) Have a blast this summer at the pool or beach! We can’t wait for the warm weather to get here, but staying UV sun safe with sun protection for kids is #1 for us!

SwimZip Founder, Betsy Johnson, was diagnosed with skin cancer at age 26 and has made it her mission to keep others from suffering her fate. Most skin cancers can be prevented with proper sun protective clothing. Unfortunately, much of that UV exposure that can lead to skin cancer and melanomas later in life can actually come during the early toddler years. So be sure to get UPF 50+ UV protective toddler swimwear, swimsuits, and bathing suits. (SwimZip also offers wholesale toddler swimsuits for retail stores to order and we are quickly expanding our Summer Camp UPF 50+ Sun Shirts For All Program.

I look into skin cancer a lot – after my diagnosis and my kids swimwear business, I really have to stay on top of it! Skin cancer is scary, and today I wanted to jump on our kids swimwear blog to let you know something ... Most people don’t realize that more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed each year or that the incidence of melanoma in teenagers has increased by 100% over the past 10 years. Did you hear that!?! MELANOMA IN OUR TEENAGERS HAS INCREASED BY 100% in 10 years! How scary. :( Swimsuit time around the pool or beach can be a particularly intense UV time because all the sun’s rays are bouncing around off of the water or sand. Getting your kids and children to wear sun protection kids swimwear is there for extremely important! We strongly preach … “No hat, no sun shirt, no play!” I founded SwimZip sun protection kids swimwear with my brother, Berry, because we truly want to help turn these skin cancer statistics around. Our with our sun protection, UPF 50+ UV protection swimwear is a simple and adorable way to help keep kids sun safe. Having found skin cancer on my back, and having the doctor question if it we should really test it, I know it can be hard to get people to listen. But I am listening! I am here to help you and your little babes stay UV sun safe. Did you know that 95% of skin cancers are preventable! SwimZip is on a mission to develop awareness of UV protection kids swimwear and how easy it can be! Thank you for joining us on our journey to grow the sun protection kids swimwear industry...
