THOSE IN THE SHADE SHOULD STILL USE SUNSCREEN.

A recent study proved that those who applied SPF100 were less prone to sunburn than those who were in the shade. It is no surprise that sunscreen protects better than shade, as REFLECTION of the Sun’s rays cause sun damage.

What is more interesting, and already known by Dermatologists, is that even those who repeatedly applied SPF100 were still prone to getting sunburn.

Avoiding midday sun, applying a good sunscreen of SPF30 or greater, wearing sun-protective clothing, and being under shade should all be utilized whenever possible.
