Everyone knows about hats and sunglasses as a means to keep harmful rays from ruining our skin, but what about an extra layer of protection for the rest of our bodies? Protecting our skin from UV rays is important year round and even more so during the sweltering summer temperatures, when the sun is at its most powerful (and dangerous). It makes sense to splurgeon a few protective pieces if you're out and about a lot during the dsay. Whether you're out walking or taking a dip in the pool, take a new and improved approach to active wear with extra comfy, UV-protected gear, for guaranteed year-round defense against the sun.
For the vulnerable upper body, there's this Nike Novelty Long-Sleeve UV Women's Golf Polo ($65), offering maximum protection from hourly exposure to the sun's rays. This lightweight, long-sleeve polo features a special Dri-FIT UV fabric that soaks up moisture due to perspiration, along with a vented hem for the ultimate in keeping cool and dry. This is a great top that will last through multiple seasons!
For those who are more aquatically inclined, there's this Speedo Women's Aquatic Swim Tee Cover-Up ($26-$30), which offers UV 50+ protection.
