We love this post on Today.com about UPF Clothes.
“Clothing is the single most effective form of sun protection, even more than sunscreen,” said Zeichner, who is also director of cosmetic and clinical dermatology research at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. “Clothing is a physical blocker of the rays and sunscreen is applied to bare skin.”
“And with an ever-growing skin cancer rate — more than 2 million Americans are diagnosed with some form of the malignancy each year — we need to take advantage of every possible means of protection, Weinkle and Ziechner both said.”
“Pass it on: Sun protective clothing protects better than sunscreen, but you still need sunscreen for exposed skin”
