Taking care of one’s skin is very important while playing outdoor sports. The same holds for golf as the players spend most of their time in scorching heat that can damage their skin. Moreover, Justin Thomas recently released a new line of products in the market that can protect every golf enthusiast from the harmful rays of the Sun.

The American professional has introduced his own line of sunscreen, called WearSPF. Moreover, the sun care products came out while the world is observing the Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month. On top of that, the WearSPF range will be available online on wearspf.com. At the same time, consumers can also purchase it on Amazon, and it will be up for grabs also in golf pro shops.

The development of the product is very personal to Thomas. In 2019, his dermatologist discovered a mole on Justin’s calf, which later turned out to be a melanoma. Thanks to early detection, it was surgically removed. But it left him with a scar and a close call with severe disease. As a result, all of this inspired Justin to roll out the new product line.

Moreover, Thomas also spoke about the same in a statement. He said, “My scare with melanoma was a real wake-up call for me and why I decided to partner with veteran consumer goods managers to launch WearSPF.” Through the new product, Justin is on a mission to get individuals of all age groups to apply, and re-apply sunscreen.
