Warning Sun information. UV Skinz review

Safety is something that we try to provide our children year round. During summer that protection is stepped up even a bit more. The dangers that the sun provides and the idea of the children wanting to spend time outside makes protecting them of importance. Both suntanning and burning increase a person's risk of skin cancer. Most sun exposure during a persons life occurs in early childhood and teen years. Many parents sadly put their children at risk without knowing it simply by not doing all that they can do to protect them from the harmful effects of the sun.

Now be honest how many of those did you actually know? Let me share you a product that can help you protect your little ones from the sun. UV Skinz have been specially designed for the reasoning of sun protection. Would it not make you feel better by allowing yourself, your children and your spouse to be protected from the sun while you are enjoying the summer? I know the answer to that has to be yes.

The great UV Skinz was created after a traumatic experience a run with malignant melanoma (the most deadliest form of skin cancer. The victim in this story was Darren who had spent many of his young years of life out in the sun having fun. He loved to spend time in the water and had numerous suntans and sunburns with no idea that they may lead to trouble down the road. At a very young age in his early 30s Darren left his wife and family when he passed because of the terrible skin cancer. It was at this time this his wife decided she must do something and created the UV Skinz company in the attempt to protect more summer lovers from the dangerous sun rays. My family has suffered with skin cancer as well. Growing up in rural Illinois we were farmers, and loved to enjoy the great summer warmth spending many hours outdoors working and having fun. We did not realize that the sun held such dangers and in return felt the effect. The hope of the UV Skinz team is that the terrible effects of the dangerous sun rays do not leave your family devastated.
The UV Skinz company has created a line of clothing that stretches from the youngest member of the family to the oldest. In sizes from 6 months to 4X every member of the family can wear the great clothing to be protected from the sun. In a variety of great colors and styles you are sure to find an outfit that meets your personality. Best of all you can look stylish while being protected from the sun.
My view: I think that the UV Skinz was great as it went on smoothly and was not too heavy. When it is hot outside no one wants to be wearing hot clothing. We received a set for my granddaughter and they fit her great she did not seem to mind wearing them at all. The construction of the UV Skinz was great as well, the material nearly seemed seemless. The material was soft and elastic and reminded me of the old spandex I wore as a teen. I give UV Skinz a thumbs up.

Buy: You can order the great UV Skinz products directly from the UV Skinz website
