Fashionable Protective Sunwear for Infants, Kids and Adults! UV Skinz Review

With Summer nearly over and Fall heading into full swing around NorthEast Ohio I have been cherishing looking at the many family photos taken during this Summer.  We spent a lot of time at the pool this Summer!  Being pregnant in the Summer is not my favorite but cooling off in the pool is one nice way to keep this pregnant lady happy!  My J-Girl gets her love of water/swimming from me and she has always been a little “fish”.

Making sure that my kiddos have safe swimwear for their precious skin has always been a huge concern for me!  Being a fair skinned family, we need to be very diligent when it comes to applying sunblock and wearing the appropriate swim gear while enjoying the pool.  This Summer J-Girl was able to try out an amazing line of fashionable protective swimwear from UV Skinz.

Wearing UV Skinz is a slip-on-and-go, earth-friendly alternative to large amounts of topical sunscreens that are absorbed into the skin

UV Skinz

UV Skinz was started by a wife and mother Rhonda Sparks after her husband Darren was diagnosed and passed away from malignant melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.  Darren was an avid surfer and loved to be outdoors but he was not aware that just one severe sunburn during a child’s first fifteen years could double the chance of developing skin cancer as an adult.  While fighting his cancer for 5 long years Darren really wanted to educate friends, family and everyone the importance of safety from UV radiation from the sun.

Rhonda’s three young boys loved to be outside as well and she soon made it her mission to make sure her boys had the correct swimwear to enjoy the sun!  While vacationing in Hawaii she would see lots of rashguard shirts for surfers and brought some home for her boys, Rhonda and other moms quickly realized that these were great products but hard to find, so in 2005 her company UV Skinz was born!

Why Choose UV Skinz?

More and more dermatologists and doctors are recommending the use of sun protective swim wear since skin cancer is on the rise.  Sure, sunscreen is still a good idea but it is not 100% effective and if not applied and reapplied regularly when out in the sun it really isn’t very effective at all. UV Skinz’s product line offers a one time application that is the safest solution to keeping the harmful UVB rays away from our families skin.

UV Skinz is the perfect swimwear for a safe and happy Summer!
