Sun-Sleeves is a barrier that protects your skin and ultimately you from the dangers of UV radiation. Feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin is always such a pleasure but this is really only beneficial in small doses.
The sun does indeed help the body to produce vitamin D which is essential for good strong bones and organs. But, over-exposure can turn your fun in the sun into a negative experience.
Many sporting activities require you to be out doors for long periods of time, leaving you prone to the UV radiation that accompanies the sunshine.
This explains why so many sporting events start very early in the morning, long distance races are a good example. The organisers aim to have most of the participants out of the sun before it reaches it's peak.
Getting out of the sun early is not always possible, and the need to protect your skin from harmful UV radiation and the reality of skin cancer.
There are a variety of sunblocks available in various different strengths that will protect your skin. During outdoor and sporting activities however you will inevitably perspire and it is highly likely that during the course of your activity most of your sunblock wil be rubbed off.
Sun sleeves are a great way to protect your skin, and even if they get wet they will dry quickly and remain effective throughout the duration of your activity.
The best way to protect yourself from UV rays and reduce the risk of skin cancer.
Plain sleeves are great for protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun whilst compliment your choice of clothing, or identifying you as part of a team. All our sun-sleeves, whether plain or printed are for the protection of your skin while you get in some excercise and fresh air.
Children need their outside time, and getting them to put on a sunscreen is not always easy and if they get wet or dirty the efficacy of the sunscreen will drop considerably. Getting a sun-sleeve wet will only help cool the child down but remain effective againts the suns UV rays. The kiddie sleeve can also have all manner of designs applied to them that will appeal to children.
