Be Fashion Forward Without the Sunburn

UVBlog The summer sun draws us outside and can provide much needed Vitamin D but it also emits ultraviolet (UV) rays that are damaging to eyes and skin. These rays can cause premature aging of the skin and possibly to lead to cancer. This should not stop you from enjoying the outdoors because City Apparel has all of the products and gear necessary to stay safe and look great.

 

Corporate picnics, golf outings, and charity events, like the upcoming Relay For Life, all are great opportunities to catch some sun and get all of the promotional products you will need for your employees and teams. Easy to transport containers of sunscreen will be great to keep by your side as it is suggested to reapply sunscreen every two hours while out in the sun and more frequently if you have been sweating a great deal. Logo’d caps and umbrellas are one of the best ways to protect yourself from UV rays by simply blocking them. Hats with a dark underside of the brim help from reflecting light into your eyes and reduce glare from surfaces such as concrete and water. The sun’s UV rays are the strongest from 10am to 4pm, when most summer events are in full swing. Even on cloudy and hazy days the sun’s UV rays are still strong, so having protection every day is a great way to prevent sunburns and skin damage. Picking the right t-shirt can also make an impact on sun protection. Having a long-sleeve shirt will give you the most protection, but sometimes it is simply too hot to cover all of your skin. Choosing shirts that are a dark, tightly woven fabric offer better protection; if you can see light through the fabric, UV rays will be coming through as well. City Apparel has light-weight clothing to help keep you cool while also protecting from sun rays.
