Sun protective clothing protects us by absorbing and / or blocking ultraviolet (UV) rays. It is important for preventing aging and skin cancers. The more skin covered, the better. Long-sleeved shirts cover more skin than short sleeve or sleeveless tops. Long pants protect more skin than shorts and high neckline tops or collars protect more than low necklines. Look for sun protective clothing, certified to have an UPF*.
*UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) UPF indicates how much of the sun’s UV rays are absorbed by the fabric before it reaches your skin. Standard summer fabrics have UPF ~6, sun protective clothing typically has UPF ~30, which means that only 1 out of ~30 units of UV will pass through (~3%).
