I’m a redhead with super fair skin. I look at the sun and burn (ok maybe not that bad, but let’s just say I’ve never had a tan). My kids were lucky enough to receive the same fair skin. I was excited to find a type of sun protective clothing that provides UV protection and looks cute on my kids at the same time. I had a chance to briefly chat with Rhonda, the Owner and UV Team Captain of UV Skinz. She started UV Skinz after losing her 32 year old husband to skin cancer. She is very passionate about spreading the word about the importance of good sun protection.
At UV Skinz, you can find protection for babies, kids, women, and men of all ages. You will find shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve), shorts, hats, and more online! Not only can you find different types of UV Skinz products, but they come in different sizes and a range of colors! Plus, all shirts offer 50+ UPF protection. The swim shirts will keep your child covered and cool with materials that have the best weight and are “breathable.”
I received a UV Skinz short sleeved shirt in Devin for my 2 older boys. Not only do they look cute in them, I know that they’ll have great UV protection when playing out in the sun! I know you’ll love UV Skinz as well! Plus, UV Skinz got great news today. They found out that baby Levi (Mathew McConaughey’s son) was caught wearing their baby Seth blue tie-dye outfit!
UV Skinz has generously offered to give away a UV Skinz product in any style and size from the site to one lucky reader from The Mommy-Files!
