"I bought these because of the price. They are half the price of Nike and I wasn't expecting much BUT to my surprise, Uvoider sleeves are of better quality and feel great. Not only do they protect you from the UV but they double as compression sleeves keeping your arms from getting tired. I am well pleased. I returned and purchased 3 more pair!".......by Tommy Jennings
"Your arm sleeves are awesome! Wish I'd discovered them sooner! I suffer from Melanoma skin cancer and really shouldn't be exposed to the sun over any part of my body. Your sleeves allow me to work in the sun without worry. Can't say enough about how much they improve my lifestyle. I classify products in 2 ways: swear by and swear at. The first time I put on a pair, I knew I had a product to swear by. Can't go wrong with the price either."........by Pierre DuCharme
"These sleeves are obviously high quality - much better material than some I have had. While the material is heavier than some, the sleeves still feel equally as cool as any I have had. Fit is really good and it appears that the elasticity off the fabric will last a long time. Very happy with the purchase.".......by Bruce King
Did you know that 72 million Americans have thin skin? Are you one of them? As we get older, our skin thins on account of natural aging, sun exposure, genetics, and use of medications such as corticosteroids. If you think that you might have thin skin, here is what you should know and do.
First, you should know that thin skin is not necessarily a serious or life threatening medical condition. For most people, our skin thins as we age. This is on account of the loss of the fatty layer of our skin that normally protects our blood vessels. Our skin loses its moisture and elasticity and becomes thin and sometimes saggy. Technically, the skin's cell division process sharply reduces with age and there is almost no cell rejuvenation. As a result, our skin becomes thinner and thinner and more susceptible to cuts and tears.
Second, you should know that exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun causes thin skinning. We now know, the sun is not our friend. Sure, we can't live without the sun and the sun contributes to our well-being and good mood, but there are many harmful effects of the sun including premature aging of the skin, thinning of the skin, sunburn, brown spots, heatstroke, eye disease, and skin cancer.
And third, you should know that you should see your dermatologist on an annual basis to have a full body exam. You should not view a trip to the dermatologist as a cosmetic visit. It is a health visit. While many of our skin concerns start with how we look when we have a particular condition or outbreak that is visible to others, there is far more to skin care - acne, psoriasis, hives, hair loss, as well as procedures to remove scars, warts, and skin growths. Healthy skin is essential for overall health.
If you have thin skin or feel that your skin might be thinning, there are some actions that you can take. First, while you can't change your genetics and might not be able to change your medications, take the time to find out about your family medical history and always be sure to know the side effects of any medications that you are taking. Based upon this information, your doctor can make recommendations and provide you with alternatives that best fit your medical profile and needs.
Second, cover your skin by wearing pants, sleeves, and wide-brimmed hats. Though often thought of as a product for sportspeople, quality UV compression arm sleeves are an excellent option for covering and protecting your skin. They can be worn to protect your arms from the harmful UV rays of the sun when outdoors as well as to protect your skin from cuts, scratches, and tears in any setting such as inside the house while you are cleaning, working on projects, or setting up a Christmas Tree or outside the house working in the yard, tending to the garden, or making repairs to the house. Simply put, quality UV arm sleeves adds a layer to your thin skin making it thicker, safer, and more comfortable.
And third, moisturize your skin and protect it with a good moisturizing cream. Talk to your doctor about which creams would be best for you. Treat your skin with Vitamin A (retinol) which can strengthen the skin and improve its ability to tolerate injuries.
Don't take your skin for granted. It is the largest organ of your body with a total area of about 20 square feet. If you have thin skin, commit yourself to a skin protection strategy. Cover up by wearing pants, sleeves, and wide-brimmed hats. Your thin skin will thank you!
