With summer just around the corner, we want to bring awareness to the importance of sun protection. May was recently declared UV Awareness Month by the Prevent Blindness Organization and being a Miami based company affected by dangerous of the sun almost all year round, this topic really hits home for us. Get ready to learn all about the importance of being weary of the sun and how Zensah can help.
According to the release via SGB Media, UV radiation from the sun and tanning beds is classified as a human carcinogen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in addition to the World Health Organization.
For many years, people have worn our Compression Arm Sleeves as a transition piece from winter to spring or when the weather is unpredictable (like at the 2015 Boston Marathon). Our arm sleeves are also great to wear in summer - Suns out, Sleeves on!
How do Compression Arm Sleeves work for sun protection? All fabrics disrupt UV radiation to some extent, but fabrics with Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) do the best job at blocking the sun as they are engineered specifically with sun protection in mind. The Zensah Compression Arm Sleeves have a UPF rating of 50+, which is the highest rating available. Our yarn and knitting process makes our products unique and gets you the best protection from the sun.
What are the benefits of Compression Arm Sleeves as sun protection? The life of an athlete means we are very active and spend a lot of time outdoors. While an active lifestyle is very healthy, being in the sun can have negative side effects like sunburn, wrinkles, and even worse like skin cancers. Wearing compression arms sleeves help you protect your skin.
Make sure you have the right gear before you spend hours in the sun this summer!
