Sun Protection Zone



Being an oncology nurse I get to see firsthand the effects of cancer. One of the most preventable forms of cancer is skin cancer. About 80% of skin cancers could have been prevented if the person had followed a completed sun care regimen and 90% of all skin cancers are caused by continued unprotected exposure to UV radiation. One severe sunburn as a child more than doubles the potential of developing skin cancer later in life. A complete sun care regimen should include sunscreen, UV protective clothing, hats that provide adequate coverage and sunglasses. That’s why I now want to take the time to tell you about one of my new favorite products, Sun Protection Zone 100% S.PF child swimsuits!

I was recently able to review one of their child’s long sleeve body suits and I fell in love with it. Mahayla has extremely fair skin and starts to burn almost instantly when outside. She hates putting on sunscreen and they often cause her eczema to flair. Sun Protection Zone’s suit provides maximum protection and limits the areas that I have to apply sunscreen. The suit is 100% S.PF/U.P.F 50+. I thought with it being long sleeved that it would be too hot for our Florida weather but it is made of a light weight high density yarn which makes it cool and helps reflect the heat. The suit dries quickly and is chlorine resistant. The suits have easy care instructions, which is good for me. The suits are available for girls, boys, and adults! The swimming suits are reasonably priced and will pay for themselves in the long run because you won’t be going through so many bottles of the $10 per/bottle sunscreen.

I was also able to test out their Solar Safe UV Sun Monitor Wristbands. These waterproof and disposable wristbands change color with sun exposure levels letting you know when to reapply sunscreen and when to seek shade! They are easy to use, read, and Mahayla loved wearing her “jewelry” to the pool.

To complete Mahayla’s wardrobe for the pool, she also got to try out her new bubble gum colored sunglasses by MFS Eyewear. Their sunglasses are available in a wide variety of sizes, styles and colors. Their products feature 100% UV protection, wrap around frame design for maximum coverage, “kid resistant”, come with an adjustable neoprene band, and are fully Rx-capable. Proper eye protection is so important for our children’s little eyes. Just like our skin, UV exposure to our eyes increases the risk of developing cataracts, macular degeneration, and growths on the eye, including malignancies. And that is why we must take all possible steps to prevent unnecessary exposures.

I love this idea. I have a 5 year old and we really don't like all that we are seeing and hearing about sunscreen being dangerous. We are always looking for alternative ways to protect him.
