Here is a little something interesting I read from the SunSmarty website: It made me think about the real dangers of my child's daily sun exposure.
Cotton T- Shirt has about 5 SPF protection...........SunSmart apparel has 50++SPF.
A bad burn before the age of 10 can increase the chances of skin cancer by 50% as an adult.
Children acquire 50-80% of their sun exposure before they are 18.
Sun Damage is cumulative, meaning the damage build up with each exposure to the sun. The skin can repair superficial damage like the redness and soreness of sunburn, but the underlying damage remains. Once our natural defences against harmful UV rays are gone, you cannot get them back.
Teach your children Sun Safety,,,they will carry with them there whole lives.
SunSmart Apparel An amazing concept! A brilliant time-saver! How often do I find myself chasing my little one out the door without first applying his sunblock? Ahem, let's not answer that. The fact is, however, I do hate grabbing my already wiggly little guy and slathering him with mucky sunscreen. Stuff sticks to it, especially dirt and sand.
And, nine times out of ten I cannot find the dang stuff. So imagine my delight when I recieved my SunSmarty swim suit for my little Braxton! He actually sat still as I put the colorful suit on him. (Braxton recieved the Superman suit.) My child was pleased as punch with the whole idea. I was impressed with the high quality fabric, stitching and the crotch zipper (included in baby sizes) for easy diaper changes. Braxton kept his suit on all day and played happily in and out of the sprinkler. Shop SunSmarty and start protecting your child's precious skin today!
Thank you JoAnne!
Here is my picture of Braxton in his SunSmarty swimsuit. He LOVES it!
