A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for eyes, ears, face, and neck. Sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection significantly reduce eye damage from sun exposure. Tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes provide additional protection from the Sun. Even on cloudy days, a sunscreen with a minimum 30 sun protection factor should be generously applied and frequently re-applied, including after every swim or outdoor exercise. Caution!
