Protecting the skin from a damaging sun is particularly important for runners who spend so much time outdoors and with as little clothing as possible to remain cool. Often we combat this by lathering up with sunscreen but that contains its own mixture of unnatural chemicals. BloqUV is a Miami, Florida-based company offering running apparel to combat this issue by designing for fit, sun protection, and performance.
With the exploding cases of skin cancer and melanoma it is paramount to protect skin from long periods of sun exposure. If you are in the sun longer than 15 minutes, your skin is already being bombarded by harmful rays. BloqUV products offer the latest in UV sun protection with fashionable flare. They design products that block 98 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays. All of their fabrics guarantee a minimum of UPF 50 and are tested in accordance with American Association of Textile Chemist and Colorists (AATCC) for compliance.
