Sun Protective Clothing – even when it’s cloudy
It’s a hazy day so do I have to wear sun protective clothing and put on sun screen? Yes, you do. Here’s why – According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, up to 80 percent of the sun’s UV rays can pass through clouds.
This is the reason people often end up with serious sunburns on overcast days if they’ve spent time outside with no sun protection. You still need sun protective clothing and sun screen. This is why you can’t seem to stop “tanning” or getting sun even though you swear you are careful. You have to be careful in the cloudy, hazy days too.
