Don't Let Sun Poisoning Ruin Your Good Times! Wear Protective Clothing

It is starting to look a lot like fall here in Pennsylvania.  That means cooler temperatures are on the way.  That also means we will be heading south to catch the suns rays!

I should have gotten a picture earlier when the rash
was really bad.  This is toward the end of it.
Speaking of the sun.  I got such a sunburn early on this year that I ended up with sun poisoning.  It was the worst I had ever had and took a long time to get rid of the rash on my arm.    It itched so bad that I would make my arm bleed by scratching it.

Since May, I have been wearing outfits with sleeves to try and protect my arms, shoulders, back, neck.  I look like I am dressed for winter when I go out.
Do you know that you can put on all the clothing you want and most times the sun still gets through?
I really didn't realize that until my arm kept getting worse, even though it was covered.

After doing some research, I am better prepared for traveling south and I am ready for the Sun!   Bring it on!  I will be wearing HydroChic Sun Protective Active Wear For Swim & Sport.

I am older and don't want to wear the traditional bathing suit that shows all my sags and wrinkles so I was happy to find a company that offers so many solutions to all ages of women.  HydroChic has a collection of swimwear for missy, plus sizes and young girls.  The style can convert to gym wear by adding coordinating pieces... and if you want to go from the gym or swimming to a restaurant, just put on one of their swim dresses.

We are renting a condo in Venice, Florida, close to the beach.  I like to go looking for black shark teeth.   Usually when I am finished playing in the water, looking for the teeth, we like to go to the restaurant (Sharky's On The Pier) just steps away from the beach.   This outfit will work perfectly for going from the water to the restaurant.  It is quick drying and dual purpose.  Normally, I would have to either go back to the condo or change in the restroom to get out of my wet clothing.  Not anymore!

I picked the Baseball Babe Inspired Long 3/4 Sleeve Rash Guard Swim Suit Shirt and the Land and Sea Swim Capris.
And check out this bra! You can read my review here The Bra For Women Who Hate Bras




All the clothing at HydroChic is made from high quality, quick drying fabrics that  has sun and superior Ultra® chlorine resistance built into the fabric. UPF 50+ Sun Protection.  Now if I go out in the sun and get burned, it is my own fault.  With all the clothing choices HydroChic offers, I have no excuse.

HydroChic is available at select stores throughout the US, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Israel.  PLUS, you can buy it online at www.hydrochic.com.

HydroChic, LLC. was co-founded by Daniella Teutsch and Sara Wolf, and launched in May, 2008. The idea came to them one day at the Jersey Shore as they watched women of all ages slather themselves with sunscreen and pull sloppy men’s t-shirts over their traditional bathing suits to protect their skin from sun damage. They knew that more fashionable coverage options were missing in the swimwear market. Only then did they realize how many other women were searching for the very same swimwear solutions. HydroChic is based in New Rochelle, NY.

  1. I never knew that you could get sun poisoning. That is enlightening. I love that there are options for those who don't like the traditional suits.

  5. I've luckily never gotten sun poisoning, BUT I do get rashes from sunscreen. If I have it on too often I end up with a horrible rash. This would be great for those days when I want to take a break from the sunscreen but still want to be outdoors.

  6. Oh, this is very interesting. I haven't heard of sun poisoning before. We should have extra care.

  7. It looks good on you! I had a neighbor who got sun poisoning when she went out on a boat all day. (P.S. Did you see that Amazon just changed their review policies?)

  11. I don't want to show my sags and wrinkles either. I hope you're not in Florida now, our weather's not so great at the moment. ;) Love the outfit! And I've never had sun poisoninig (knock on wood) but a good friend of mine's mom has had it and I remember it was no fun for her at all.

  12. I like that shirt! It's good you're wearing it. I have such light fair skin. I have to be careful too. Everyone should.

  13. My oldest daughter is so sun sensitive, it's always a good idea for her to wear clothing that offer UV protection. I'm going to head over and see what they have that she might like!

  15. I've never had sun poisoning but it sounds painful. I do however have very sensitive skin and burn easily so next time I head to the beach I'll look into something like this to wear.
