Similar to the SPF rating system most redheads know well (like the back of their hand), the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating system measures the UV protection provided by fabric.
Yes, clothing made with sunscreen in it does exist!
Therefore, a garment with a UPF rating of 50 only allows 1/50th of UV radiation hitting the surface of the fabric to pass through. Simply put, a UPF rating of 50 blocks 49/50ths or 98% of UV radiation.
Whether you’re soaking up the surf, scaling a mountain range, or shopping till you drop this spring break, stay safe from the sun’s harmful rays with these stylish UPF-rated garments.
