Bye Bye Sunburn, Hello Sun Protection Zone *Giveaway*

When Amber hits the pool with her friends or goes to camp, I’m always concerned she’s more occupied with fun than remembering to reapply sunscreen.  Her fair skin burns quickly, and then we have days of complaining, itching and flaking, and years of hoping the UV rays didn’t do irreparable damage.

Even if she does remember to reapply the sunscreen, who knows if it’s been absorbed completely before it has washed off from the pool chemicals, and all the high spf sunscreen a family needs to get over the summer can be costly.

That’s why we like to make sure she’s wearing a swim shirt.  Besides protecting her from the sun, it protects her form oogling boy eyes too!  Anyway…

This summer she’ll be sporting a Short Sleeve Rash Guard from Sun Protection Zone.  This ActiveSkinz shirt has 100 SPF/UV 50+ maximum broad spectrum UV protection.  The fabric is tightly woven with proprietary high-density yarn, is comfy against the skin, dries fast and is made to wear in both chemically treated and salt water.

The four way stretch fabric makes it easy to pull on and off, and while it is a fitted cut, it preserves its shape after being wet and then drying.  And when you’re done at the pool or beach, get it wet again by cleaning it in the washing machine!

This particular shirt is a Womens Size Medium.  You can get some idea of the sizing by knowing that Amber is 4’11” and about 90 lbs.  It fits her well, so they are made on the small size.

You can see the difference here where she has a Mens Size Small on.  It’s roomier and longer.  The Mens is cut a bit wider than the Womens.

This ClassicSkinz shirt has the same features as the Womens ActiveSkinz.  It also has better moisture management, breathable fabric and a collar designed for extra neck coverage.  It also comes with cool vintage designs.  (The design is actually the back of the shirt, we had it on backwards to show the fit and and design at the same time.)

So if you’re looking for protection and relief from the strong rays of the sun, check out all the products Sun Protection Zone sells for the entire family.
