The only way to have complete protection from ultraviolet radiation is to combine SPF and UPF by putting on sunscreen regularly, wearing sun protective swimwear or clothing with 50+ UPF and also adding additional sun protection hats and sunglasses. Eyewear with sun protection is measured in EPF, or eye protection factor. An EPF of 10 is the highest level of protection available. The more time that passes, the more ultraviolet radiation reaches our planet every day. It is extremely vital that sun protective measures become part of our daily lives. If they dontít, then the rates of skin cancer across our planet will just continue to increase.

The best way to safeguard your skin while staying out in the sun is to keep as much of the skin covered as you can. New methods have given manufacturers the ability to create materials that actually block up to 98% of ultraviolet radiation, and those fabrics can be used in UV sun protective clothing and swimwear. Be sure to also wear a head covering to protect your face, neck, and ears. To complete your protective sun gear, wear sunglasses that safeguard your eyes from UVA and UVB rays. A wraparound style is your best bet for complete protection.
