What is a UV-shirt?
A UV-resistant shirt stops UVA and UVB-radiation. These types of radiation coming from the sun can burn the skin and damage it. If you don't protect yourself from the sun properly, you increase the risk of skin cancer. It is especially important to protect young skin against sunburn, as it is particularly susceptible to sunburn. In the places where the fabric of the UV-shirt covers the skin, most of the UV-rays are blocked and don’t reach the skin. There are several protection factors within UV-clothing. At UV-Fashions we mainly have UPF 50+ in our range. This means that as much as 98 percent of the UV-rays are blocked.
What makes a UV-shirt protective?
There are various ways to make a UV-shirt UV-resistant. With our shirts, this is mainly because a certain weaving technique has been used in the manufacture of the fabrics. This ensures that UV-rays are stopped.
Is it better to apply sunscreen or wear a UV-shirt?
A UV-shirt is super easy because it wears light and cool on the skin and in the places that the UV-shirt covers, you don't have to apply sunscreen to the skin anymore. A UV-shirt protects the skin covered by the fabric throughout the day. That saves a lot of hassle with sunscreen and creates a lot more boot space because you don't have to carry as many bottles of sunscreen with you. But the best thing is of course a combination of both. So wear UV-clothing and apply sunscreen to the uncovered areas of skin every two hours. Don't forget to buy a UV-hat either. The head also needs to be protected from the sun, because scalp burns are very unhealthy, and otherwise you may get sunstroke.
Where is it convenient to wear a UV-shirt?
Everywhere, actually. But especially when you are outside and especially when the sun is shining. Burns are always lurking.
Does a UV-shirt protect you better than an ordinary shirt?
