You may have heard of clothing that has a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating, meaning it offers a certain amount of UVA and UVB defense to the areas it covers. You may also be familiar with the practice of using blue light to help heal acne. But we’re guessing you’re currently unacquainted with an amazing line of clothing that marries the two technologies.
SunSoul, based in Toronto, creates clothing made with what they call Fluorescent Therapeutic Materials, a first-of-its kind fabric that not only boasts excellent UV protection, but also selectively enhances the sun’s healthy bands to benefit your skin.
In the case of SunSoul’s blumöd line, the material transforms broad-spectrum light into a narrow wavelength of blue light, which improves the appearance of blemished skin by killing acne-causing bacteria. Ideal for body breakouts, the blumöd shirts (available in men’s, women’s and unisex styles) are made to be worn in the sun for at least two hours each week, as the results increase with the amount of sun exposure. (So it’s important to apply-and reapply-sunscreen to uncovered areas.)
If you’re already the outdoorsy type who enjoys regular bike rides or hikes, these sporty tops are a no-brainer-and no-breakout-for active apparel.
