Sunscreen not enough4th May 2007
Denim and wool provide the best protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays, says new research. Scientists have discovered that the best protection comes from tightly woven fabrics in dark colours. Loosely woven fabrics, cotton, wet clothes and bleached materials leave people more exposed to skin damage from the sun. The scientists were tasked with reviewing the use of sunscreens and people’s exposure to the sun and found that because people were haphazard with their use of sun protection creams, they were better protected if they made a sensible clothing choice at the beginning of the day.
