There is really no alternative to getting the right protection for you and your family from skin diseases brought about exposure to the sun. You need sun protection clothing to get on.
The average T-shirt only provides an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) equivalent to a SPF 7 sunscreen.Sun protective clothes are specially engineered clothing, swimming suits or hats that have been specially developed to include chemical UV absorbers that prevent penetration of UVA and UVB rays.
And for even further comfort and assurance, you might be happy to know that sunglass manufacturers have to follow certain FDA regulations. They have to comply with impact requirements – not saying that sunglasses must be completely shatterproof, but that they will at best, withstand a moderate impact.
It takes 20-30 minutes for sunscreen to be absorbed by the skin, so it should be applied at least a half an hour before going out in the sun. Sunscreen should also be the last product applied especially on the face since some sunscreens can break down in the presence of the water contained in water-based foundations and moisturizers.
