Sun Safety: The Boy’s Store

Here at The Boy’s Store we care about our boys, that is why we make sure we carry important summer sun safety items to help keep your boys safe outside all summer long.

UVA rays are the first of the worries when it comes to sun exposure. UVA Rays cause aging of the skin, and can cause skin cancer called melanoma. UVB Rays are another danger, these rays cause sunburn, contribute to immune system issues, and also cause melanoma. Melanin is a chemical in our skin that tries to protect us from these rays. The darker your skin the more melanin you have, but this does not mean you are immune to sun exposure and shouldn’t cover up. What it does mean is you may be safer with less protection, whereas a light colored skinned person will need higher protection. You also need higher protection if you have freckles, moles, fair hair, or a family history of skin cancer.

Now everyone should cover up, especially during the strongest sun exposure part of the day, 10am to 4pm. Cover up includes:

Long clothing
Sunblock (The American Pediatrics Association suggest an SPF of 30 or higher for children 6 months and older.)


Here at The Boy’s Store we offer many different types of hats, sunglasses, and cover ups, tees, or rash guards that can help protect you child during their outdoor festivities of the summer days. We offer boys favorite brands like Knuckleheads, Wes and Willy, Flap Happy, and Appaman. Each offer a wide array of hats to protect your son during those hot summer days. Each of these brands also offer great rash guards and tees that will help keep them protected from harsh summer rays, without being uncool for keeping a’shirt on at the beach or pool. The Boy’s Store even offers a great selection of Real Kids Shades. Each pair of shades offers 100% UV protection.


So before you get your boys ready for some fun in the sun make sure you check to make sure they are protected! 20130626-123743.jpg
