Preventing Skin Cancer: kayak kit

I paddle in Florida.  And playing outside increases my risks of developing skin cancer.  I do take precautions to protect my skin.  I wear sunblock that is high in a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF.  And I cover as much skin as possible.  Covering skin with a long sleeve top is the simplest yet most challenging way to protect the skin in a hot climate.  I have used lycra (surfer style rash guards) but they always kept me wet.  Now I use a  shirt made by Columbia because it keeps me cool, dry, and rash free of chafing armpits.

I hope my sun kit gives you some ideas to keep your skin healthy. —Jeff
