- All delicate places must be covered. Choose a swimsuit from fabric that reflects ultraviolet rays. For the eyes there are special glasses, and for the breasts - stickers. On the head we put a special cap to protect the hair from ultraviolet light. Stickers are recommended to close tattoos, moles and neoplasms of unknown nature.
