Can You Burn Through Clothes?

Can You Burn Through Clothes?

We all know that spending time outdoors is fantastic for our health and well-being. But as the sun shines brighter, it’s crucial to remember that even when we’re covered up, our skin isn’t completely safe from the sun’s harmful rays. Yes, you can actually get sunburned through your clothes!

Why Clothes Aren’t Enough

The truth is, not all fabrics offer the same level of protection. Lightweight and loosely woven materials, often chosen for their breathability, can easily allow those pesky UV rays to reach your skin. The colour of your clothing also plays a role — darker colours tend to absorb more UV light, offering slightly better protection than lighter shades.

The Bosideng Difference

At Bosideng, we understand that sun protection goes beyond just sunscreen. That’s why we offer a range of innovative clothing options designed with your skin’s safety in mind. Our fabrics are carefully chosen for their UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating. It’s how we make sure you have optimal defence against harmful UV radiation.

Investing in UPF clothing is like having a built-in shield against sunburn, even when you’re fully dressed. And because our clothes are as stylish as they are functional, you won’t have to sacrifice fashion for protection.

Extra Tips for Sun Safety

Staying sun-safe isn’t just what you wear — it means making smart choices for your skin’s well-being. Here are a few more tips to complement your UPF clothing:

  • Choose the right fabrics: Look for tightly woven fabrics with a UPF rating.
  • Cover up: Opt for long sleeves, trousers and wide-brimmed hats.
  • Don’t forget the sunscreen: Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to exposed skin.
  • Seek shade: Especially during peak sun hours.

Sun protection is a multi-faceted approach. Combining UPF clothing with other sun safety measures is the best way to keep your skin healthy and sunburn-free, all while enjoying the great outdoors.
