Practice all-important precautions. Light skin people may get burned in less than 5 minutes. Seek shade and minimize exposure to direct Sun in a period between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV radiation is most intense; keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not provide perfect sun protection. 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. Prolonged stay under the direct sun should be avoided as much as possible, especially if a person burns easily. Sunscreen with a minimum 30 sun protection factor should always be used.
