Mr. Sun & I. We’re not really besties.
Not that I burn, or don’t love reading by a cheerful sunlit window. That’s not it. I’m talking skin. As in skin protection. I’m ALL about UV protection for my skin and my family’s skin too. If you ask anyone who knows me well, they’d probably tell you that I’m an oddball here in Costa Rica. I walk around town on sweltering days with long sleeves and a big floral-print sunhat. Yep, I’m that lady.
Enough about me. Let’s talk summer sun protection for you and yours. If you’re a water-lovin’ family, as most are as the temperature rises this season, consider a simpler, less-messy alternative to sunscreen.
Protect your skin this summer with a rash guard.
Rash guards were made popular by surfers, and are now available for anyone who’d love to protect themselves from harmful UV rays. it is basically a thin sun-resistant top that’s rated for it’s UV protection factor (most hover around UV 50). I’d never thought much about rash guards until we went to the beach in May with some pals in Italy. All three of their little boys hit the sand in wetsuits, and the mama in a rash guard. What a great idea! Wearing a rash guard, you don’t have to slather as much sticky chemical sunscreen all over your body. These come in sizes for the whole family. Last weekend, we went to the mountains with friends, where her baby showed up to his pool date with Summer Elizabeth in none other than the tiniest little rash guard I’ve ever seen. He pretty much rocks it, right?
Save your skin. Save your time. Get yourself a rash guard.
