Everybody knows that too much exposure to the sun isn’t good for your skin, especially if you’re fair and prone to burning. We’ve been taught to wear sunscreen and to cover up outside, but there’s one area that often gets forgotten–our hands. Whether we’re playing sports, driving, or going for a stroll, when we’re in the sun our hands are almost always exposed. So to prevent sun damage, it’s a good idea to wear UV protection gloves.
However, picking a pair of UV protection gloves isn’t something that you want to do off the cuff as there are a lot of factors to keep in mind. In this guide, we’ll show you what to look for when choosing the right pair of gloves for you. After that, we’ve put together 10 of our favorite UV protection gloves to help you get started on your search.
Surfing is one of the most exhilarating sports out there, but can also be very uncomfortable if you’re not geared up with the proper rash guard. Whether you aim to surf like Kahanamoku or you just try your luck at the waves every other summer, you need to be prepared and protected. Rash guards help protect us from any type of abrasion, including salt water, movement, and surfboard. They also do an amazing job at protecting our bodies from the dangerous UV rays.
Sometimes referred to as wet suits, rash guards are common. With so many out there, it only makes sense that it’s difficult to choose the right one. There are different materials, thicknesses, and features to think about. The prices can also vary greatly depending on what kind you get. We’ll walk you through everything, step-by-step.
