Many people head outdoors when the weather warms up. Vacations, sports, event gatherings and even work tasks can lead us outdoor and expose us to the harmful rays of the sun. Over exposure to the sun UV radiation may cause skin and eye damage, and may even lead to skin cancer. Sunscreen is an effective tool to protect the skin against sun damage, but it is not enough without other adequate all day sun protection. When spending long hours in the sun, it is essential to wear sun protective clothing in addition to applying sunscreen on exposed skin to minimize the effects of the sun's ultraviolet rays.

How to Choose the Right Sun Protection Swimwear?
While sunscreen is measured by sun protection factors (SPF) and eyewear measured by eye protection factors (EPF), clothing or swimwear are measured by ultraviolet protection factors (UPF) and this number measures how much ultraviolet radiation can penetrate the fabric and reach the skin taking into consideration the weight of the fabric, the construction of the weave and how much skin the clothing protects. Example a swimsuit with UPF number of 10 provides significantly less protection than a swimsuit with UPF number of 50. When purchasing sun protective clothing or UV protection swimsuit, look for the highest UPF rating of 50+ which blocks over 97.5% of the sun ultraviolet radiation. Special sun protective swimsuit such as full body stinger suit can also protect the skin against jellyfish, sea lice and other sea creatures.
The amount of sunburns experienced during childhood is linked to the risk of skin cancer later in life. It is wise to wear uv protective swimwear from an early age, also wearing a sun hat, sunglasses and applying sunscreen on exposed skin can preserve your skin elasticity and tenderness and keep it healthy over the years.
