Other suncare products

Suncare protection should not stop with just sunscreen and lip balm. There are many suncare products that can be used to protect your self from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Other recommended suncare products are clothing with UPF protection. There are a number of factors that affect the level of ultraviolet protection provided by a fabric and the UPF rating. In order of importance they are: weave (tighter is better), color (darker is better), weight (also called mass or cover factor - heavier is better), stretch (less is better) and wetness (dry is better). Other suncare products include a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses. Wear a wide brimmed hat to cover the back of your neck and ears. Together with UPF clothing and wide brimmed hats, eye protection is a must for a complete suncare protection program. Look for sunglasses with 100% UV protection.
