Rash Guard Sun Protection - Wearing a Rash Guard

November 23rd, 2009

     Okay people, it is never too late to start protecting your skin.  This article discusses the benefits of using rash guards to prevent sunburn.  Especially when we are young, a nice tan seems much more important than worrying about getting skin cancer, or pre-mature sun damage.  Let’s face it, we all enjoy going to the beach or pool and laying out to get some color.  Unfortunately, this is hazardous to our health.  It is a goal at Beach Depot Rash Guards to to increase sun protection awareness for people of all ages through the use of rash guard swim shirts, sunblock, and sunglasses.  Below is a description of some ideas on how we can spread this message. 
     Wouldn’t it be nice in the future to have public service announcements (similar to the ones on tv with lifelong smokers talking out of a box), only instead of a smoker, a lifelong sun bather?  The commercial could feature a hideous looking woman (for character purposes we will call her Susan).  This woman Susan has years of sun exposure under her belt without the use of sun-protection clothing.  She has earned the nickname in her community of “leather wallet” and “The Raptosaur” due to her reptile-like skin reminiscent of alligators and iguanas.  Although she is only in her 50’s, Susan looks more like an archaelogical discovery from ancient Egypt than a middle-aged woman.  She is a walking advertisment for sun protection, and her face alone could start a global movement for avoiding the sun at all costs and living in the dark like a vampire.
  The commercials could work well in print media with her picture and the caption “Do you want to look like this at 55?  Don’t be a Susan, protect your skin today.”  T-shirts could be made spreading the motto “Don’t be a Susan!”
     If young people today became more aware of the fact long term sun exposure will cause pre-mature sun damage like it has done to Susan, protecting skin with   The issue will only become more important in the future.  Skin cancer incidents among people under 30 is becoming a much more common occurance due to a stronger sun and increasing uv levels across the globe.  It will be essential that sun protrection become a part of everybody’s routine when planning outdoor activities.  Increasing awareness now will definitely pay off later with a goal of reducing skin cancer rates over time. 
     The fact is that sun protection is quite simple.  Surfing rashguards shirts, swim shirts, and spf sun shirts are affordable and effective.  Sunscreens and sunglasses can very easily become a part of a person’s daily routine just like brushing or flossing.  Humans adapt to change.  Thanks for checking out these ideas.  Please send a comment with your feedback.

Are Rashguards Chlorine Resistant?

October 21st, 2009

Here at the Beach Depot this is a common question that we often get calls and emails about from customers.  The answer is yes, our rashguard shirts are designed to be chlorine resistant and withstand repeated use in a pool (or the ocean for that matter).


Whenever you use your rashguard in either salt water or chlorinated water we do recommend rinsing the swim shirt off with fresh water after each session.  Doing so will ensure your rashguard swim shirt will last for many seasons.  When salt or chlorinated water dries on a rashguard (and sits in a hot car all

 summer long) over time this can slowly begin to breakdown the lycra fabric. Rinsing with fresh water will keep your rashguard surf shirt looking and feeling great for many many uses to come.  I hope this post helped answer your questions.  Please feel free to contact us directly at babysoftproducts@yahoo.com.  Thanks! The Beach Depot Rashguards
