With Spring in full swing, nothing beats getting outside to participate in your favorite sport. Whether it's running, golf, fishing, cycling, or just cheering on your favorite athlete at practices and games, sports and outdoor enthusiasts spend countless hours in the sun's rays putting them at a higher risk for skin cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation warns that a person's risk for melanoma doubles after five or more sunburns, making skin protection a priority for those who spend an extended period of time outside. In 2014, the acting Surgeon General issued a Call to Action to Prevent Skin Cancer because skin cancer rates continue to increase, even though most cases of skin cancer are preventable. The SCF recommends sun-protective clothing as the first line of defense against UV exposure, which can lead to cancer. Coolibar is the first sun protective clothing line to receive the SCF's Seal of Recommendation.
Sun protection is very important to me, as I am a Redhead, and very fair skinned. Last year I had a scare of skin cancer with a spot on my back, which I had removed, and it ended up not being cancer, but still scary! So I was pleased to get some clothing items from the Coolibar line!
