In Southern California, we enjoy Spring as another part of Summer. The weather is still warm, the sun is still shining, and we are outside! We love to enjoy the outdoors as much as we can. we play late into the evening, and we swim and play in the sprinklers to cool down.
Our children are very fair. They burn very easily, they get it from their momma! So we try to make sure they are well protected from the sun. This is our first big weekend of swimming and we are ready with hats and rash guards.
Why Rash Guards you might say? Sunblock is fine! NOT. Remember when we were kids and our moms tried to convince us to wear t-shirts in the pool? It wasn't because they were wanting us to be modest, they wanted us covered. Sunblock fades, rinses off, and only protects us so well. Rash Guards have a built-in UPF and UV protection -- many up to 70% more than sunblock alone! They still allow for the kids to feel light and comfortable and to experience the water fully. it just gives us a little better piece of mind in the protection department. It doesn't matter if your kids aren't surfers and you are just playing in the sprinklers at home -- protection from the sun MATTERS. The Boy's Store has some great rash guards that are not only fun but stylish as well. They even offer some with matching hats!! WOOT WOOT! Check them out.
