Sun protection in paradise with UV Skinz

UV Skinz

We traveled to the Maldives, the land of sun, sand and sea and never consumed a tub of sunscreen lotion. We were out in the beach every single day.

How is that possible?

The whole family had amazing skin protection thanks to UV Skinz, sun protective clothes that are stylish and carry a UPF rating of 50+, which blocks out over 98% of the sun?s harmful rays, protecting delicate skin from damaging sunburns. Sunscreen isn’?t always enough and is often not used correctly. Some people have skin allergies or sensitivities to chemicals that sunscreens can contain. UV Skinz are sun shirts that are not made with any chemicals or lotions.

snorkeling trip

During our snorkeling trip, I wore the pink and white long sleeve, my husband in navy long sleeve and Benjamin (carried by our Maldivian guide in black) wore long sleeve in navy/ocean blue.

While I don’t burn easily, both my kids are like their dad, fair skinned and sensitive to long exposure to the sun. I didn’t want to spend our vacation with two sunburned kids (it can be very itchy and can keep them awake at night!) but at the same time, didn’t want to restrict sun play. After all, this is the Maldives!

UV Skinz made it possible for all of us to enjoy the beach without applying or reapplying sunscreen. You’ll still need to use sunscreen on face, neck, legs, etc… but it’s so much easier and more convenient when you only have to worry about the minor parts! I find that it’s the kids’ backs, arms and shoulders that gets hardest hit by sunburn.


UV Skinz is founded by Rhonda Sparks, who lost her husband to skin cancer when he was only 32 years old. She decided that her life’s mission would be to raise awareness about the disease anyway she could. It’s the company’s passion ensuring that you make the best investment in the highest protection rated, most comfortable, fun and fashionable outdoor and swimwear products that will maximize your fun in the sun.

Pristine is wearing long sleeve skinz in pink tie dye. I thought this is really cute.

I personally like that the fabric is made of high quality, not those very thin pieces of cloth. The colors are bright and do not bleed when washed and they are really super soft that sometimes, my daughter would sleep wearing it! (She is always beach ready when she wakes up…)

One more thing I love about UV Skinz is that it dries up really fast! We were swimming every single day while there and we would hang it at night to find it dry in the morning.

I highly recommend this brand for the whole family! Unfortunately, this is not available in any stores in Dubai but you can order online at UVSkinz.com.
