Over exposure to the sun rays can severely damage the skin
Millions of people head outdoors every year, as soon as the weather warms up. Sports venues, family gatherings and even work can lead us outdoor and into the potentially harmful rays of the sun. If you don't take precautions and steps to be protected from the sun, you may end up with unwanted skin damage, eye damage or even skin cancer. Over exposure to the sun rays can severely damage the skin and may ultimately lead to skin cancer! Protecting yourself and your family from an early age can help prevent skin damage, sunburns, and preserve your skin natural elements.
Sunscreen is a great tool but not enough on its own!
Although sunscreen is a great tool to help prevent sun damage, but it is not enough on its own. When spending any amount of time in the sun, it is essential to wear UV swimsuit and sun protective clothing in addition to applying sunscreen to minimize the effects of the sun's ultraviolet rays. While most people are familiar with sunscreens and how to choose the right one for different types of skin, not many know how to pick out the right UV protective swimwear and sun clothing.
I simply wanted to let you know how wonderful I think your full body suits are. As fair skinned people living in Hawaii we understand the power of the sun. It might be fine to get pink during a week long vacation but it's a totally different story to be pink year round. These suits SAVE us in the water. We used to come home with lobster-red backs and necks from snorkeling or kayaking (even with a reapplication of sunblock). Now we make sure we are wearing our suits and we come home able to enjoy our evening instead of slathering ourselves in aloe. l vacillated between the full suit without a hood and the hooded one - then decided to go full goofball and bought the pink/navy one with the hood. Do I look goofy? Of course! Do I get a painful sunburn on my neck or ears? Nope. Does my long hair escape and tangle in front of my mask to obscure my view? Nope. Does my long hair get tangled in my mask strap? Nope. Does my long hair get caught in my armpits while I freestyle out to the reef? Nope. And for the record, that totally happens and is not comfortable. Thank you for the comfortable, lightweight, easy to put on, sun shielding, jellyfish sting preventing, reef rash preventing suits you make. Our family may be the goofiest looking on the beach, but we aren't fools! Cancer protection is more important than fashion! Rebecca W.
