Rash Guard for Kids
Rashguards were first introduced to Australia and used for various water sports such as surfing, swimming, snorkeling, diving, etc. Rash guards were used because they can offer very good protection against direct sunlight, block 98% of UV radiation, are comfortable, and can protect you from jellyfish stings.
Any rashguard is made from spandex and polyester and sometimes spandex and nylon. Being made with these materials, it will offer you flexibility, warmth, protection against UV radiation and against jellyfish. Rash guards are used when the temperature is too high for a wetsuit. Surfers sometimes wear them to protect against UV exposure, and in most cases, they wear rash guards to protect against chafing. While the surfboard is waxed, it retains sand from the beach and this could injure the surfer’s chest when paddling.
Kids these days wear these rash guards as sun protective clothing and to protect their delicate skin from jellyfish stings that can lead to serious illnesses that could develop even more complications.
There are two types of rash guards available for children: children’s long-sleeved rash guards and short-sleeved rash guards. Both suites have a thin layer of sponge on the inside that will keep your child warm, while they have a fabric that blocks the sun on the outside. Your child will love the rashguard and you will love it too. If your child is allergic to one of the chemicals in sunscreen or if you just think that sun lotion is not enough to protect your child’s sensitive skin, then you should buy a rash guard. This will help protect your child from skin diseases caused by jellyfish stings and skin cancer caused by sunburn.
Usually there aren’t many patterns available for rashguards, they tend to come in one color, usually darker colors like black or dark blue, and have a thin, light-colored strap on both sides from head to toe. Medical professionals recommend that you have two rash guards available for your child at all times: one that your child wears and gets wet, and one that is dry. If you do not want to buy two rash guards, it is recommended to change your child’s swimsuit as soon as he leaves the pool or beach; Otherwise, you can get serious illnesses from bacteria that can form on a wet rash guard or bathing suit.
