Snorkel Rash Guards are a paramount way to protect yourself from the sun and even minor scrapes and cuts while snorkeling.
There are many different types of rash guards on the market today. They range from skin tight, loose-fitting, long sleeve and short sleeve.
While sunscreen is a great tool to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun, it can be a pain to constantly monitor when you applied, how much you applied, when you have to reapply, how strong the SPF is, and is it a strong enough SPF for today’s snorkeling activities.
Rash Guards make the Best Sun Screen!
Rash guards take all the guessing out of the sunscreen process. Once you have a rash guard with built in SPF then you know that as long as it is being worn, then you have the protection you need. Still, don’t forget to apply sunscreen to areas that are easy burned and susceptible to the sun such as the head, face, back of the neck, and hands.
Rash Guards Prevent Minor Cuts and Scrapes!
Lastly, minor bumps into coral can result in scrapes. Since coral is a living creature with bacteria in it, these small scrapes can get infected. Rash guards won’t prevent scrapes and cuts from coral but it will add an additional layer of protection for your peace of mind.
Don’t forget about the kids!
Kids don’t pay attention to the sun and sunscreen until they’re crying and in pain later that night or day with a burn that could have been avoided. Make sure to protect your children from the sun while you all are enjoying your next, awesome snorkeling adventure!
