These days it is hard not to spot people wearing arm sleeves from marathon winners like Yuki Kawauchi and Shalane Flanagan to LPGA champions lke Brooke Henderson, Brittany Lincicome, Minjee Lee and many other players, to outdoor enthusiasts and workers of all ages. Parents are even getting UV arm sleeves for their kids to put on before going outside to play. And for good reason, they work. Here are a few good reasons to put those arm sleeves on your kids!
Kids need sun protection too. Not only is their skin soft and susceptible to sunburn, kids don't know that sunburn only lasts two hours and easily washes off. Kids are not going to come inside after two hours of play to ask mom or dad to put on more sunscreen. A safer and longer lasting solution is to slip a pair of UV arm sleeves on your kids before they go out and play in the hot sun.
It is never to early to establish and practice good skin care habits. Although more commonly found in adults, melanoma affects approximately 500 children in the U.S. each year. Also, too much exposure to the sun and repeated sunburns as a child damages the DNA of the skin and builds up over time causing skin cells to grow out of control which can lead to skin cancer.
When kids play, they fall down. Sometime they fall down on their own, other times they get a little help. Though minor injuries, skin scrapes can be painful and they can't get infected. And then there is always the temptation that kids have at picking at their scabs which can lead to infection and scarring. UV arm sleeves prevent many of the skin scrapes the kids get such as sliding on hard ground, concrete, or surfaces like a rug or trampoline.
Kids get scratched as they play. Kids get scratches from thorny bushes, prickly weeds and grasses, the toys they play with, and of course each other. UV arm sleeves will help prevent many of these kinds of scratches that kids often get.
Few kids can spot poison ivy or poison oak, but they sure notice what happens to their skin when they accidentally come in contact with it. And unlike adults that know not to scratch the itch, kids almost always will give in to the natural temptation to scratch away at that tingly, irritating, itchy feeling. This can cause the allergic reaction of the skin to spread, get infected, and take longer to heal. For kids at play, UV arm sleeves is an effective defense against contact allergies and much better than bare arms.
Just as kids do not come in from play to reapply sunscreen, they don't come in from play to get sprayed down with mosquito repellent. UV arm sleeves prevent bug bites in two important ways. First, as a skin for your kid's skin, they offer protection against those annoying bugs that bite them. And second, UV arm sleeves keep your kid's arms cool and dry which makes it very difficult for moisture and head sensing insects to find your kids.
In the event that your kid already has skin damage to the arm such as a skin condition, an allergic reaction, a cut or scratch or scrape, sunburn, or a bug bite, UV arm sleeves protects your kid's skin from further damage as they are outside playing in the sun.
When kids play outside, things happen. While you can't protect them from every possible mishap, you can protect them from a number of common threats they are likely to encounter. UV arm sleeves. Big people wear them because they work and they are good for little people too.
