Sunscreen has always kind of worried me. It makes me nervous to spread a cream w/ chemicals that I can't pronounce all over my skin...or - even worse - on to my child's skin.
Just last week, I read another new study that asserts that Many Sunscreens May Be Accelerating Cancer (yes, accelerating!).
The news confirms my commitment to using only all-natural sunscreens...and to using them sparingly. Truth be told, I don't like smearing the icky, oily stuff on anyway...and my babes aren't big fans either.
The trouble, though, is that getting burned by the sun is also dangerous (and the sun comes out almost every day of the year here in Arizona).
My solution to this dilemma is twofold: Shade + Sun Protectant Clothing. Sun dresses and swimsuits with spaghetti straps are cute, but the coverage they offer is insufficient. Enter: UV Skinz, a California-based company that offers stylish sun protective swimshirts with a UPF rating of 50+. Options are available for men, women, babies, and kids. Most pieces retail for between $27-$43.
These pictures make my heart so happy! Maybe living in Arizona isn't so bad, after all. Still...I'm looking forward to the cooler days of autumn when we can pull out our hiking boots and hit the trails as a family again.
[Speaking of hiking, these shirts are PERFECT for it].
