Fortunately, there is a way to protect yourself against sun damage. You can do so by investing in sun-protective clothing.

Below we explain what sun protective clothing is and what are some of the best UPF clothing you can find at BALEAF.
Sun Protective Clothing and UPF
Sun protective clothing is specially designed clothes that guard your skin against harmful UV rays. UPF, also known as ultraviolet protection factor, is a design factor built in your clothes to offer better protection against UV rays. In simple terms, UPF is precisely the same as the SPF level of a sunscreen that helps prevent the penetration of sunlight through your clothes and eventually to your skin.
UPF ranges between 15 and 50+, and similar to the SPF of a sunscreen, a higher number indicates better protection against UV rays.
Why Do You Need to Wear UPF Clothing?
Sun protection clothing or UPF clothing provides extra protection against UV rays. As summer is right around the corner and you will be planning some outdoor adventures with friends and family, you will need gear that offers extra protection against the dangerous UV rays. UPF clothing enhances your protection against sun rays and eventually decreases your risk of UV-related health concerns, including skin cancer and premature aging. But it is essential for the following groups of people.
Individuals With Fair and Sensitive Skin
People with fair and sensitive skin are more prone to sun damage. Their skin can burn more easily. Moreover, they have an increased risk of skin cancer and premature skin aging. By investing in UPF clothing, people with fair and sensitive skin can guard their skin against sun damage.
Individuals Who Live in Warmer Regions
Sun intensity is most significant in these regions, and people who prefer to spend time outdoor need extra protection against sun damage.
Individuals Taking Certain Medications
Several medicines, including antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, ointments for skin conditions, and antihistamines, can increase sun sensitivity. If you are take any medications, then it’s best to invest in UPF clothing so you can better protect your skin against sun damage.
