Studies regarding sunblock are alarming. People do not apply sunblock properly and the chemicals in sunblock are absorbed into your skin and have undesirable side effects. The state of Hawaii is even banning sunblock on account of the harm it is doing to their coral reefs. For many activities, UV Compression Arm Sleeves are better than sunblock. Here are 10 reasons to give them a try..!
Unless you apply sunblock very liberally and reapply it every two hours, and for some products every eighty minutes, you are not being protected from the harmful rays of the sun. As a result, in just one outing you can get sun burn and over time you can get skin damage which may lead to skin cancer. UV Compression Arm Sleeves are an alternative to sunblock. Whenever you wear them, your arms are protected from the harmful rays of the sun.
Whether at work or play, when you are doing an outdoor activity in the sun such as cycling, golf, tennis, running, fishing, landscaping, painting, roofing, or construction, etc, wearing quality UV compression arm sleeves will keep your arms cool. Rather than having your arms covered in sweat, sunblock, and insect repellent, with quality UV compression arm sleeves the moisture-wicking properties wick away perspiration making your arms feel cool in the process as if they are in air condition.
Quality UV compression arm sleeves are very comfortable and you can wear different sizes to achieve the level of compression, fit and feel that you like and most beneficial to your activity. Compression not only makes your arms feel comfortable but it provides restoration and recovery to the muscles in your arms. This keeps your arms feeling fresh and relaxed.
Unlike sunblock products that must be reapplied every two hours, with quality UV compression arm sleeves there is no need to apply or reapply anything. As long as you are wearing them, you are protected from the harmful rays of the sun.
One of the biggest reasons for wearing quality UV compression arm sleeves is that you will no longer have to put up with all of the mess of sunblock. Sunblock is very messy and anything your arms come into contact with will end up getting some amount of unwanted sunblock. Sunblock can stain and discolor car seats and the interior areas of your car that your arms touch, the arms of your chairs and sofas, and of course your clothing.
When it comes to performance, quality UV compression arm sleeves beat sunblock hands down. First, there is the performance associated with protection from the sun. Covering up with sun protective clothing is always a better performing option than a chemical product. And then there is the performance associated with how the sun protection alternative works with your activity. In virtually every outdoor activity, quality UV compression arm sleeves will help you perform that activity better. Sunblock just makes your arms wet, greasy, and slippery.
In addition to skin protection and performance, arm sleeves are stylish. You can wear the traditional solid color arm sleeves such as white, grey, or black that go well with anything. Or you can don a wide variety of patterns and colors best suited for your activity and personality from camouflage for hunting, fishing, and nature watching to stylish print designs that complement your attire, to specific colors that support your team or cause.
Sun protection is not the only form of skin protection. For many activities, your arms can get cut and scratched. Whether mowing the lawn, trimming hedges, pulling weeds, or picking flowers, it is not too hard to find a way to get cuts and scratches on your arms. Sunblock provides no protection for this, but with quality UV compression arm sleeves your arms will be protected from many of the typical cuts and scratches that come with the outdoor activities.
Sunblock provides no insect protection and spraying on yet another chemical product just makes your arms even more hot and messy. When you wear quality UV compression arm sleeves, you will be protecting your arms from all kinds of insects in two ways. First, arm sleeves keep the insects off your skin. But even more importantly, quality UV compression arm sleeves keep you arms from getting hot and sweaty. Since insects use their sensing capabilities to detect heat, moisture, and chemicals such as your sweat, when you wear quality UV compression arm sleeves insects are less able to find you.
For many activities, your skin can come into contact with harmful chemicals that can cause rashes, outbreaks, and allergic reactions. Such chemicals could be insect sprays, lawn and garden sprays, paint products, and automotive and outdoor cleaning products. Unlike sunblock products that provide no protection for contact exposures, quality UV compression arm sleeves prevent harmful chemicals from coming in contact with your skin. Also, the chemicals in many medications like antihistamine and sedative drugs cause photo-sensitivity and can have side effects when people taking these drugs are in the sun. When doctor's orders require you to cover up, quality UV compression arm sleeves will keep your arms safe from the sun; sunblock won't.
So, if you are an outdoor enthusiast or you just find yourself in the sun a lot on account of work, you must protect yourself from the sun. If you haven't tried them already, it is time for you to try on a pair of quality UV compression arm sleeves. For a wide variety of reasons, many people find them to be a better alternative than sunblock. You might find them to be better as well.
