Shade is the best sunlight
The best place in the sun is the place in the shade. This is also true on the beach, particularly if you want to build up a healthy summery skin tone. Even though the shade offers considerable protection from UV light, it does not shield you completely from it. Up to 40% of UV rays still reach you in the shade. That means that you will also tan in the shade. So the risk of getting sunburnt here is considerably higher than most people think. Not even clouds offer complete protection. A cloudy, grey sky reduces UV radiation by only a small percentage. So if you are in the shade or it’s a cloudy day, you should not go without adequate protection.
