Why celebs are ditching teeny bikinis
    2015-07-03  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    RASH guards have been fringe-trendy for a while now — who didn’t want to look like Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush, blonde and badass in a Billabong top? But it’s only this summer that they’ve really taken off. Beach-going celebrities such as Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Reese Witherspoon, Lea Michele, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, and Jessica Biel are pulling rash guards over their itsy-bitsy bikinis for additional sun protection.

    Consider it the anti-Kardashian move — while others are baring all, the cool kids are covering up in style. And retailers are taking note. Instead of the usual monochrome swim shirts, this season’s offerings are bright, in-your-face, and made to wear with bikini bottoms. Between poppy florals, trippy kaleidoscope designs, and Breton stripes, there’s a rash guard for everyone.

    The best part: Experts agree that rash guards are a smart move when it comes to sun protection. According to the U.S. Skin Cancer Foundation, rash guards are a great option for anyone spending time in the sun and water — they protect the covered areas for hours, and there’s no reapplication required.

    Here’s the thing, though — you can’t just throw one on and assume you’re all set for sun protection. You’ll end up with damaged skin in areas that aren’t covered by the rash guard, such as your hands and neck. It’s important to still apply sunscreen to any exposed, uncovered areas of skin every two hours, or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. For outdoor activities, they recommend applying a broad spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

    That said, you don’t need to worry about applying sunscreen under the rash guard.

    If you want to be extra safe, you can look for reputable brands that do extensive testing to ensure UPF protection.(SD-Agencies)
