The best UV clothing will keep your skin protected yet still be comfortable to wear. There are plenty of options for men, women, and children who want to enjoy the winter sun without worrying about the rays.
For the best UV-protected clothing, have a look at the below list.
What Is UV-Protected Clothing and Why Do You Need It?
UV-protected clothing simply protects your skin from the sun's harsh rays. In doing so, it helps prevent sunburn, which can eventually lead to melanoma.
If you have an active, outdoor-based lifestyle, you need UV-protected clothing. The winter sun is particularly deceptive in how it affects your skin. You won't feel its heat as strongly, and therefore won't be able to tell if you're getting burnt.
UPF is used for the sun protection factor in clothing. This is equivalent to the common SPF that you'll no doubt already have heard of.
