Protective Clothing, Hats and Sunglasses

How to Treat

In addition to daily sunscreen products, wearing protective clothing, hats and sunglasses can significantly increase protection from UV exposure. Sunglasses should have specific UV coating to ensure adequate protection, and hats should be wide enough to provide shade for the entire face, ears and neck. Certain companies have developed protective clothing and detergents that provide UV protection. Even wearing darker rather than lighter-colored clothing will increase the amount of protection.
