Skin & Sun

April 10, 2012

Limit your time in the sun, especially during the middle of the day (between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.), when the sun is at its strongest.
Remember that water, sand, and snow reflect the sun’s rays and increase your risk of sunburn.
Wear sun-protective clothing, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses as an added layer of defense. Keep in mind that the sun’s rays can penetrate light-colored and thin fabrics, so opt for darker-hued, tightly woven fabrics or clothing specifically made for sun protection, such as long-sleeved shirts and long pants or skirts.
