Wear sun protective clothing that covers as much of your body as possible
Clothing creates a barrier between the skin and the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and can provide the most effective protection. Loose fitting clothing that covers as much of the skin as possible, such as shirts with long sleeves and collars and long trousers and skirts, are best. But not all clothing fabric is equal. Clothing with a high ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) rating will maximise protection.
