UV Skinz Chemical-Free Sun Protection Review

I have been very open about my experience with skin cancer. I am a native Floridian who had a squamous cell carcinoma removed from my neck two years ago and my dad is currently battling stage 4 skin cancer.

Protecting my skin and the skin of my family from the damaging effects of the sun is extremely important to me. In addition to applying sunscreen on a daily basis, sun protective clothing is a staple in our wardrobes.

UV Skinz has a wonderful line of sun protective clothing with SPF 50+ for the entire family including adults and children. This is so convenient because the clothes are functional and comfortable. There is no need to constantly reapply sun block to the covered areas which is a bonus for families like mine with squirming young children.

I have had a hard time finding fashionable and functional sun protective clothing for women and UV Skinz has an excellent selection of swim shirts, active wear and sun hats. I really like the “Cheryl” ($43.95) which is a long sleeved, zippered swim shirt. The size that I selected fit perfectly and I can use this as a swim shirt or my preferred way which is to wear it as a cover-up over my swimsuit to give extra sun protection. I have also worn this over a tank top on bike rides, golfing and for an afternoon walk and since it is so lightweight I do not get overheated when wearing it even on the hottest day in Florida. It is very easy to put on and take off and comfortable to wear. You can choose from colors including black, white and sky blue and sizes for this style goes up to 4X.

You can stock up on all the summer necessities for sun protective clothing for babies, kids, women and men. The Cheryl is very well-made, stylish and attractively priced and I look forward to trying out the children’s line. UV Skinz will help you protect your entire family enjoy the hot summer days without the damaging effects associated with excess sun exposure. You are invited to visit UV Skinz website.
