Protect yourself with anti-UV clothings and hats
The sun is a valuable ally in our welfare and our beauty, but it could represent a danger to our health if you underestimate the problems caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays. Any redness of the skin indicates that there has beendamage. Children, adolescents and people with light skin are particularly sensitive and require a particularly high protection.
In addition to sunscreen, it is now possible to approach in a different way to the “sun problem” exploring the possibility of clothings and / or hats for sun protection.
But how do you assess the protective capacity of a garment? If taking a T-shirt against a light source is noted that the fabric passes a lot of light, it means that the UV rays pass through it too easily.
Most of the summer clothings leave too much skin exposed to direct sunlight.
