A rash vest (or rash guard) is the perfect way to protect your skin during a sunny day at the beach. Whether you are going surfing, swimming, playing volleyball or just chilling in the sand, a rash guard keeps you protected all day long. But why do you need a rash vest?
- Sun protection
The main reason to wear a rash vest is to protect your skin from the sun. A lot of rash vests provide SPF 30 or 50 protection, so you don’t have to worry about putting sunscreen on your upper body when you are in the water. Choose a long sleeve for full protection or a short sleeve for a cooler feel.
- Keeping you warm
A rash vest can keep you warm while you are in the water. It may not provide the same warmth as a wetsuit, but it will still make a big difference because it gives you an extra layer that works as isolation and prevents water from touching you directly. When it’s really cold, you can even wear it under your wetsuit to stay extra comfortable during the colder seasons.
- Preventing skin irritations
When you spend a lot of time on the beach or in the water, your skin might get irritated after a while. The salt and the sand can scratch your skin and cause it to itch, and the sun can give you a rash too. And when you are surfing, your skin might get irritated by the constant friction between your body and the surfboard. When wearing a rash guard, your skin is protected from all these irritations, so you can comfortably enjoy your day at the beach.
