Popular Science | How to dress to protect yourself from UV rays

It might sound obvious and probably you’ve heard it a million times by now, but protecting yourself against the sun’s UV rays is very important.

If the rising rates of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, doesn't convince you to wear sunscreen (both indoors and outdoors, all year round), vanity might. After all, UV protection can reduce the number of wrinkles you get as you age, and may prevent dark spots on your skin, according to Adewole Adamson, a dermatologist and assistant professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Texas at Austin.

If you’re wary about sunscreen or you just want to compliment your strategy against UV rays, thinking about what you wear and when, could make a huge difference.
