Sun safety is always important, but during the summer months when the sun is a little harsher — and we spend more time outside — we need to protect ourselves and our kids even more. One of the best ways to protect our kids is to cover large areas of skin with protective clothing. How do we do that comfortably and properly while still being able to enjoy our summer water activities? Rash guards.
Rash guards are amazing long or short sleeved shirts that cover the skin and can protect from UVA and UVB rays during long hours out in the sun. Unlike sunblock it doesn’t need to be reapplied and can protect all day long. It is comfortable to wear in the sun since it breathes, and it is comfortable to wear in the water.
The Boy’s Store carries several different types of rash guards to help protect your boys during their favorite water activities.
