Here’s another daily tip from your local dermatologist!
All right, so I’m ashamed to admit this, but I hate putting sunscreens on my body. I do it on exposed skin so I don’t get sunburned, but I try to keep as much of my skin covered with sun protective clothing, so that I don’t have to put as much sunscreen on.
And if you’re like me, or you just want more protection, do the sun protective clothing. They’re awesome! They keep their sun-protective factor whether you’re cold, or hot, or wet, or dry, and they offer some reflection. Which is the best type of protection possible. So please use them and there’s lots of them out there. You can just type into Google: “sun protective clothing” and now you’ll have 20 or 30 different companies that are selling them, and they no longer make you look like purple.
