I'm sure many of us deal with this issue.. Nothing is worse than my glove tan lines.. Its something I cannot hide.. I look stupid with white hands and tan arms.. lol

That being said.. Are there any gloves or Jerseys that "allow" UV light to pass through?

I know that they make bathing suits that allow you to tan through them.. (Mostly for girls and no, they are not see through)

Anything?

THANKS

I take pride in my glove tan lines. Problem solved.

The helmet vent tan pattern on my bald head is another matter.

Between cycling and diving, I just stopped caring about goofy tan lines.

Dual purpose -> use sun tan lotion. Prevents the lines and skin cancer.
I was reading that sun tan lotion doesn't decrease the chances of getting skin cancer. Not sure how true it was.

I wear sleeveless jerseys whenever I can, it avoids the really dorky looking tan lines on the arms. Gotta wear gloves, I'd rather have tan lines than remove skin in a crash. As for legs, regular shorts got that covered.

I thought it was to prevent burns, which it does.

squareslinky said sun tan lotion. Maybe he meant sun screen. They're 2 different products. I'm not at all sure sun tan lotion is an effective product to help prevent skin cancers. Dermatologists universally say to use sun screen, the higher # the better. I usually wear 50.

Tan lines should be a source of pride, not shame. Wearing sleeveless jerseys? - the cure is worse than the disease...
Yea, the extra patch of tan skin will eventually end up killing you :rolleyes:
