Clothes. Besides covering up with sunblock, covering up with special sun-protected clothing offers great additional shelter.

All the items in the dermatologist-recommended Solumbra line of clothing – including a colorful selection of men’s and women’s shirts, pants, jackets and hats – have an SPF of at least 30, blocking 97 percent of UVA and UVB rays.

Similarly, Tuga Sunwear offers a line of shirts and hats with 50 UPF protection, blocking UVA and UVB rays. The beachwear UV Skinz also offers a zippered version of its popular sun-blocking swimshirt, making it easier to get on and off, especially when it’s wet. Even the popular Fila has a complete line of tennis clothing with SPF 30 woven into the yarn.

Sunglasses. Don’t forget your eyes when you’re in the sun. The Mayo Clinic recommends lenses that block a minimum of 99 percent of UVB rays and at least 95 percent of UVA rays, but now many manufacturers offer 100 percent UV protection. For example, the travel or performance lines from Julbo offer 100 percent protection against UVA and UVB rays.

Sunglasses that are polarized reduce glare for sharper, clearer vision. Just because lenses are polarized, however, doesn’t mean they offer UV protection, so make sure the lenses are also labeled for UV performance. Use caution if choosing blue-blocking lenses, which are most often yellow or orange. Although these lenses are thought to make vision easier in low light, they may not offer sufficient UV protection.

And if you read outdoors, consider sunglasses that double as reading glasses so that your eyes are always protected. Try sunglasses like those from Cinziadesigns, so you’re not squinting at your books unprotected from harmful rays.
