As someone who worked for a Dermatologist for many years, I know just how important it is to protect your children's skin from the damaging rays of the sun. The best time to start is now. While they are young. My kids are so used to be lathered up with sunscreen protection that even going out to the deck on cloudy days they tell me I forgot to put their sunscreen on.
What I love about Tuga clothing beside the protection quality is that they have great styles for boys, girls, adults and pets.
What is important to kids? The clothes are stylish and fun.
My son, cannot wait until the summer when he gets to wear his newest summer, beach wear. I take great lengths to put them in protective clothing, hats, sun glasses, and cover ups. He is going to be the most stylish kid on the beach this summer. Next on my list, is the matching baseball cap, something for my daughter and umm...hello something for me. Perhaps this cute hat!
Here is a sample of the 3 piece sets. Cute right??!!!
Yeah, there are really cute girl sets but as the mom of a son and a daughter, I know you can find cute girl things but you never find cute boy things. The sets for boys are awesome. I love that there were so many choices for boys.
In A Nutshell: How stinkin' cute will your kid look in these? 50+ UPF protection clothing that keeps out 97.5% of UV rays! Adorable designs and safety! It's a total win/win situation. Also, the prices are affordable enough for you to get a complete outfit. Two piece boy set and water shoes for under $70.00
The Generous people over at Tuga are giving my readers a 20% discount when they order now. Just put the code REESSPACE in the appropriate space on the order form.
How do you size them? Check out the link here.
Tuga Sunwear designs its UV protective clothing to fit loose. Traditional rashguards that fit tight on the body are not as UV protective as the fabric is stretched thereby creating small holes which allow UV to penetrate. Their UV protective clothing sizing is designed to be average fit. Use the age designation as a starting point but weight and waist measurements are the most important things to go by. It is not uncommon for example, for a 3 year old to wear a size 5 years.
What I love about the Tuga Sunwear line most of all is that they make a conscious effort to educate people about the dangers of sun exposure at a young age. Most people do not know that the average person receives 80% of his/her lifetime sun exposure before the age of 18. With the increasing rates of skin cancer it is imperative that we teach good sun care habits at an early age.
Now, to you help you on the road to sun protection, Tuga is offering one of my readers the chance to win a sun protective set for your child.
