Sun Protection Clothing and Gifts

By

With so much sunshine for so many days of each year it is important that we pay attention to the protection of our skin. These are some recommendations for sun protection clothing and supplies to help you avoid the damage that the sun can do to your skin.

2. Vehicle Sunshades

I know, it isn't clothing. But when you and the kids are in the car, someone is always sitting on the sunny side of the vehicle, and it gets hot. The shade blocks the sun's glare and protects from harmful UV rays. Great for baby, kids and adults to make riding in the car more comfortable.

Dr. Shade has various styles of sun protection hats. Shown here, the Outback hat. Also available, a removable shade fits over the crown of any baseball cap to protect your neck and ears from the sun. Made of lightweight microfiber, it offers 30+ SPF protection. Dampen the fabric for extra cooling on hot days.
