Tuga Sunwear Giveaway!-Closed!

I have always lathered my kids up with sunscreen whenever we go outside in the summer (and when I forget, my daughter is sure to remind me). It's just a given, living here in Florida, that we are going to be exposed to a lot of sun so I do my best as a mom to keep them from getting burned. However, sunscreen alone just isn'tenough.

The bad news: The average person receives 80% of his/her lifetime sun exposure before the age of 18. This means that what we do now as parents has a huge impact on their health when they get older.

The good news: There is clear consensus in the medical community that skin cancer can be virtually 100% prevented by developing 5 sun safety habits early in life:
1. Use SPF 15+ sunscreen
2. Wear sun protection clothing
3. Protect the eyes with UV400 sunglasses
4. Cover the head ears neck and face with a sun protection hat
5. Reduce time spent in the sun from 10am to 4pm.

So, I was really interested to learn more when I heard that there was swimwear material out there which meet the 50+ UPF standards of blocking 97.5% of UV rays. The Tuga Sunwear line of sun protection clothing takes care of most of those sun safety measures when kids are at the beach and in the water. Which in Florida is a good percentage of the time.



Tuga Sunwear offers the cutest, stylish clothes for everyone, mom, dad, brother, sister...pet. Pet? Yep, pet. Why not? Doesn't every dog need this outfit? He definitely proves it - You definitely don't have to sacrifice style for safety!






I was given the boy's Jammer 2-piece set to review. My son just loved it. He thought he was so cool looking. (nope, this isn't him in the pic) I put the outfit on him with a pair of sunglasses and he was running around the house all excited. He couldn't wait to go outside and play in it. The shirt was not very tight, which seemed to make it more comfortable. The shorts were tight fitting, but didn't have any itchy seams sticking out. All of the seams laid flat so they don't rub. What I liked most about the outfit was how quickly it dried after it got wet.


What impressed me about Tuga, is that the company is not just concerned with selling their products, but they are committed to educating people about sun safety, as they state it:
Our goal is to educate parents and kids on safe sun habits and to provide a program of sun protection products that make it fun and easy to do so. Tuga Sunwear sun protection clothing is designed to provide greater body coverage, yet still be functional. Our sun protection clothing's patterns are designed to be form fitting and to incorporate stylish cuts. And through the use of colorful designs we make sure kids are looking the best at the beach or the pool. For our sun protection clothing we use fabrics that are made specifically, both through the knitting and dying process, to meet the 50+ UPF standards of blocking 97.5% of UV rays.





Check out their site to see all of the cool, stylish, yet affordable, sun protection clothing. Your kids will look great and you will feel great knowing that you are doing something important that will save them a lot of problems in the future.
