And the next day and the next day!
Are you headed to Seabrook Island, Kiawah, or some other sunny locale soon? If you haven't purchased your skin protection, here's a great alternative--sun protective clothing.
Lands End has come out with a line of protective clothing called Sun.Life. The Sun.Life clothing contains UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) ranging from 30-50. Other sun protective clothing can be found at Alex and Me Co., The SPF Store, and Coolibar(**You still need to slather up the uncovered parts of your body with sunscreen).
Don't want to buy a whole new wardrobe? Try Rit's SunGuard, a laundry wash-in aid. SunGuard lets you add UPF to your own clothing. A plain white cotton tee shirt has an UPF rating of 5. Wash in SunGuard and you will increase your sun protection 6 times, providing a UPF rating of 30. Order SunGuard from its website.
