But a new product known as Sun Guard claims by simply washing with it --you can boost the protection of any article of clothing up to Ultraviolet protection Factor 30 --which is the equivalent to an SPF of 30.

[ANCHOR=Joy Full]


Just because the SPF is higher doesn't mean you can stay out in the sun longer --it's just added protection. Some other tips to keep in mind are to limit your exposure to the sun between 10 a-m and 4pm and remember sun screen needs to be reapplied often.
Clothing only protects the parts of the body it covers --so you still need to apply a sun screen to the exposed parts of the body.
