About Sun Blocking Clothing

 So what brings you here to find out about sun blocking clothing?

Do you wonder if it worth the price?   Will sun blocking clothing help prevent skin cancer?

After long hard months of reading and researching, I have learned how much I didn’t know.   As well as how much I ignored concerning the danger of too much sun on my skin.   

Awareness is my new motto for reminding myself about how I can protect my skin.  I can also help my family take better care of their skin as well.

I Am Now Aware  

Is it possible that my hours of reading and researching could help you become aware?

I thought this could be done in a month!- maybe by some, but not by me.  I am just a writer, not a Doctor with a degree.  A late-arriving slow learner who wants to have some idea of how to help myself and my family.

It is boring and sometimes gross to read and research any cancer condition.  The terminology is hard to remember until it refers to you or your family.

Where are you in your knowledge of Protection From The Sun IQ?   

“I want a tan” phase?  Is this you?  Maybe you think “I don’t need to worry about the sun, do I?”   Or are you in the “what was I thinking” phase? 

Regardless of where you are in the awareness of your skin’s need for protection to avoid skin cancer, please pay attention.

Awareness for Skin protection

What are you seeing in how your body reacts to sun exposure? The first line of defence is to cover up!  Plain and simple! 

However in our society with the general public wanting tanned skin, we don’t cover up!  Everyone and their adopted cousin think they need a tan to look cool.

I know, because yes, I felt that way for years.  No, I couldn’t see what was happening.  Sure I knew people who were 10 years or so ahead of me in the game of keeping that tan look. 

And I saw what they looked like.  I was so sure my tan would only end up with the cool factor, not the wrinkled and dried up look.  That wasn’t what I wanted! 

Awareness in your daily life

What do you want for your time in the sun?  Do you want to allow the sun to damage your skin until you look old and wrinkled and dried up?  Until the skin cancer forces you to make a change?

Or do you want to enjoy your time outdoors and have healthy skin with little if any skin damage that leads to skin cancers?  Arm yourself with awareness.

It is a choice we make.  Using sun blocking clothing along with sunscreen creams and lotions can help you keep your skin healthier.  However, the sunscreen creams and lotions alone won’t do it all.  You will need both.

I am beginning to get my sun blocking clothing knowledge going.  Where are you on your journey?  Is it worth the price for the protection?  With more knowledge and awareness can you make a better decision?
