By now, many people have embraced sunscreen lotion on up to SPF 100+, but have you ever heard about SPF clothing?

While there will always be a place for high-quality sunscreen on body parts exposed to the sun, covering up elsewhere can minimize a person’s skin cancer risk significantly. Ideally, it's possible with clothing designed to absorb or shield the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This is where SPF clothing comes in to play! But what is the SPF clothing?

With the Labor Day weekend and the end of summer fast approaching, I took a moment to reflect on everything that has happened this summer and what it has meant for me both professionally and personally.
