Summer is all about long days in the sun, and it’s important to keep your skin safe and healthy to avoid any long term damage! Sun burns and skin cancer are no fun, but neither is staying indoors when everyone else is outside. So the best way to get outdoors and stay safe from the sun, is by by wearing UPF clothing!
Here are some quick reasons why you should build up your UPF wardrobe this year:
1. Better Coverage
UPF clothing offers better overall coverage than SPF sunscreens. Many sunscreens aren’t broad spectrum, which means they don't block out both types of UV rays - UVA and UVB. Tutublue’s UPF clothing blocks out 98% of both rays, which drastically reduces your chances of getting sunburned!
You’ll also be better covered with UPF clothing because there isn’t a chance of you missing a spot. With traditional spray or lotion sunscreens, you’ll more than likely miss a few hard-to-reach spots. With UPF clothing, you put it on once and you’ll have full body coverage (if you’re wearing one of our Long Swimsuits).
2. No Waiting Time
Remember when you were a kid and your parents made you wait 20 minutes after you put on sunscreen before you can go in the water? It was the worst! With UPF clothing you can put it on and head straight into the water - no waiting time necessary.
3. No Mess, No Fuss
Let’s face it, sunscreen can be super messy! The lotions somehow get all over our clothes, and the mists make surfaces and floors super slippery. Avoid the post-application clean up when you wear UPF clothing instead.
4. No Reapplications
With traditional sunscreens, you need to reapply every 2 hours, and even more often if you’re sweating or in the water. You also run the risk of it rubbing off on clothing or when you’re sitting down, leaving you with spots that aren’t properly protected from the sun. When you wear Tutublue’s UPF clothing, you never need to reapply, plus you can wash your suit as many times as you want without the protection washing out!
5. Swimwear with Benefits
The great thing about UPF clothing is there’s even more benefits on top of the sun protection factor. Tutublue’s suits have Quick Dry Tech so your suit will dry in no time, as well as 4-way stretch allowing you to perform any activity in or out of the water with ease!
