SPF For Clothes – Coolibar

coolibar%2Bhoodie SPF For Clothes - Coolibar

Are you doing anything to prevent skin cancer while you are at the pool?

Like many people I go to the pool wearing a sun dress or sarong, with my bathing suit underneath.  After I take all of those clothes, I apply sunscreen and I am thinking that is good.  I do not know why I do this, because I have purchased a few pieces of sun protective clothing for my son.  You would think I would try and protect my skin as well.

This past Saturday, was my first day at the pool.  We have hit triple digits and I could not wait to wear my Coolibar, Zno poolside hoodie.   When I put it on and looked in the mirror, I thought, “This is cute!!!” My daughter and my friend confirmed it when they saw me in it.  After they said it was cute,  I did not want to take it off.

Yes, it was 102 degrees and I was rockin my poolside hoodie.  It is very light weight and the sleeves are nice and long. It fits great!!!  I did not feel hot nor was I uncomfortable.

My family spends countless hours in the sun.  We are always swimming, hiking, walking or running.  My son is active in sports, so he needs to be protected more often.  We always apply sun screen  to protect our skin, but that is not enough. We know we are putting ourselves at higher risk for skin cancer, but we need to wear sun protective clothing.

The Skin Cancer Foundation warns that a person’s risk for melanoma doubles after five or more sunburns, making skin protection a priority for those who spend an extended period of time outside.
In 2014, the acting Surgeon General issued a Call to Action to Prevent Skin Cancer because, skin cancer rates continue to increase, even though most cases of skin cancer are preventable. The SCF recommends sun-protective clothing as the first line of defense against UV exposure, which can lead to cancer.  Coolibar is the first sun protective clothing line to receive the SCF¹s Seal of Recommendation.

Not only am I confident that my skin is being protected I am stylish as well.  

How are you protecting yourself from the sun?
