It seems that it is that time of the year again, where I am online, researching the newest and best swim and sun gear for our girls since theirs have began to stretch, fade, and show their use and age. Our girls spend a lot of time in the sun, even now that we are off the boat.
Being in the DR means a lot of sun, a lot of sweat, and a lot of fun. But while they are doing all of that I also want to make sure they are not burning, getting too hot, or having to be covered from head to toe in ugly garments and sunscreens.
After doing all my research I have come full circle to some brands we have already been using, but narrowed it down to a few select ones that are just purely awesome. Here are the four companies I that I thought I would highlight, to save you the time of clicking through websites. These are the ones we love.
makes sun protective beach and swimwear for kids. My favorite part about their brand is that they protect our girls’ baby skin, but and help them look so cute in doing it. They have a huge array of different styles, for both boys and girls, that can be mix and matched, creating stylish options for safe sun practices.
This company started with two mothers understanding that skin cancer is more and more prevalent, and so it is extremely important to guard the little ones sensitive skin to the sun elements. But they also understood that parents would be more prone to do so if their kids could also look good while being safe, rather than looking like they were just covered in the unflattering options that were on the market. So they took it upon themselves to create a better option, and have succeeded. SunUva has been recognized in the press and also by the “rich and famous”.
Being sun safe never looked so good.
was originally launched and geared towards the junior sailing market. They understood that on the water the sun is doubly strong, and that our little ones need that extra protection. It wasn’t long that they brand crossed over from the sailing community to the general market.
Their sun-protective clothing is made to have the functionality that parents are looking for, ie. sun protective, lightweight, dries fast, and is breathable, without compromising on style. They want kids to have fun in the sun, while letting parents rest assured that their littles ones are being protected from the sun.
Our girls love their swimsuits from SnapperRock, they are fun, comfy, age appropriate, colorful, and cute. We love SnapperRock because they keep our babies safe from burning, and they look so absolutely adorable wearing them.
When it comes to sunscreens we have tried many different brands and weaned it down to 2 that we love and trust. They are two completely different styles of sunscreen, that we use in different scenarios.
