What can I wear in the water to protect me from UV rays?

Sun Protective Swimwear

For added protection when sun block just isn't enough, try sun protective swimwear. There are shirts specifically designed for swimming and sun protection. These shirts will be much more hydrodynamic than just a simple coverup. Available in short and long sleeves, they are formfitting and unrestrictive. Also, there are bodysuits available for children and babies that protect their sensitive, fair skin. These garments are available for purchase at surf shops, swim shops, and many Internet stores.
