Jonathan is a Swimsuit Model

Well, kind of. GrUVywear sent Jonathan a swimsuit to try out and I had to get some good pictures for this post, right?  He certainly is cute enough to be GrUVywear's official swimsuit model though, don't you thinK? The glasses were J's idea.

J was so excited to get his GrUVywear swimsuit in the mail and immediately tried it on and said, "I look like a surfer!" I think that is why he wore his sunglasses. . .to complete the surfer look.

I like GrUVywear because it protects my boy from the sun's harmful rays. Yes, Hispanics (and African Americans for that matter) can get sunburn and skin cancer so they too need to wear sunscreen. I had to look all this up when we adopted a boy from Ethiopia and a boy from Guatemala.

Both of these boys below can get sunburned. People with naturally dark skin are just better protected from the sun because thy have a higher amount of melanin (a protective pigment) in their skin. It just takes a little longer for them to get sunburned. Sunburn happens when the amount of exposure to the sun exceeds the ability of the body’s melanin to protect the skin. (so says the Library of Medicine).

GrUVywear specializes in UV protective swim wear that offers a UPF of 50+, blocking over 98% of the sun’s harmful rays. I love that. . .no sunscreen needed on the skin covered by the swimsuit. No reapplying sunscreen to the skin that is covered. . . I like that even better.

GrUVywear (love that name, highlighting the sun's harmful UV rays) was a big hit with J and me. I want to get David a suit too because GrUVywear comes in all sizes, infant to adult. David loves a surf shirt and likes to wear the tight shorts under a regular bathing suit.  But GrUVywear also sells the non tight shorts with UV protection in them.

GrUVywear is offering The Intentional Home readers a 15% discount on all orders placed between now and July 15; just use the code SAVE1548. Their swimsuits are already reasonably priced so 15% off makes them a great deal. Click here if you are interested in checking out all the fun colors and styles of this GrUVywear.

And one more picture of my cute swimsuit model:

Disclosure: I received a complimentary outfit from GrUVyWear in exchange for this post. However, all opinions expressed are my own and J and I really were pleased with the swimsuit. I promise to always be open and honest with you. I only share what I would normally share with my girlfriends in real life.

  1. Those pics of Jonathan are precious! What a cutie!

    Love that swimsuit. May need to get one of those for Henry, b/c I too hate applying all that sunscreen, plus that spray stuff is not cheap!

    Thank you!!!
