Not so long ago, sunburn was almost encouraged since people thought that it was a sign of good health. However, this isn’t true. Instead, sunburn is actually a sign that your body is trying to protect itself against the sun’s UV rays. Nowadays just about everybody knows that sunburn means that your skin is damaged and since this can easily happen people are always trying to find a way to stop it from happening.
One way in which you can protect yourself (or your children!) from the sun’s UV rays is by wearing a sunsuit. It’s always a good idea to check the UPF rating on a sunsuit before purchasing it, since some can be better than others. The higher the UPF, the better! Here’s a quick example: A sunsuit with a UPF of 50+ means that around 98% of the sun’s rays will be blocked while a sunsuit with a UPF of 40+ will block around 97% of the sun’s rays.
As you may know, children’s skin is a lot more sensitive than an adult’s skin so it’s a good idea to make your children wear a sunsuit next time they are having fun at the beach etc. If a child wears a swimsuit that has a UPF of 50+, they could spend 2 hours in the sun and only receive around 2 minutes worth of the sun’s rays. That’s quite impressive when you think about it! By spending around £20-30 or so on a sunsuit you can prevent the sun from doing too much damage to your (or your child’s) skin. So, why not invest a bit of money in to a good sunsuit?
