Women are most likely to find melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, on their legs. We all love to have pretty, tan legs, but unfortunately, the more we tan, the more we risk this deadly disease. Melanoma is on the rise, and is one of the most common cancers found in young women. It also has a devastatingly poor survival rate when it’s discovered at a late stage.
In the last few years we have found ladies swim tights that offer maximum sun protection for your legs. They are so versatile, too—perfect for swimming, cycling, running, yoga and to cover up on the beach when you know you’ve had too much sun. And if you like snorkeling, they offer excellent coverage in the water.
You can find these swim leggings in a capri length, too.
Some even come with swim skirts. So you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for protection. Pair them with a long sleeve rash guard shirt or a short sleeve swim shirt and protect your upper body, too. No, you don’t have to stay out of the sun completely, but use the swimming pants to keep your legs covered on those days when you know you’ve had too much sun, and the rest of the time you’ll love them for your exercise class!
