Raynie Moves To The Beach

Posted by

Raynie Blog

As some of you may know, I am Raynie, the daughter of one of the owners and creators of Solartex Sun Gear. My mom Lisa and her business partner Laurie got the idea to start this company after my redheaded brother and I were born. We both have very fair skin but love spending time outside in the sun. Lisa wanted to protect us from the damaging UVB and UVA rays but still allow us to enjoy our time in the sun. She knew other parents would agree that it's no fun having to worry about re-applying sunscreen every hour so we don’t get sun damage. Solartex’s sun protective swimwear and clothing was her solution!

                                  

I have recently moved to Virginia Beach and have been spending more time in the sun than I ever have before. I live right by the Bay and spend time there every afternoon during the week and all day on the weekends. I love to stand up paddleboard and sunbathe in my favorite chair.

                                    

I always have to be mindful and protect my skin each time I go out in the sun because of how sensitive it is. Because I go so often, I go through sunscreen like crazy and am always having to worry about reapplying. Wearing my sun protective swim shirts is so much easier when out by the water. It protects my skin completely and I don’t have to wear sunscreen underneath at all! They are also super cute and make me look like a surfer when I’m on my paddleboard! I wear long sleeve shirts, short sleeve shirts, swim shorts, and hats.

                                                    

I grew up wearing my moms sun protective swimwear from her business whenever I went to the beach, pool, lake, and river. Now that I live right on the beach where the sun is at its strongest, its more important than ever that I use sunscreen and wear my sunprotective clothing!
