Sunscreen washes off over time and therefore protects you less and less as time goes by. By wearing sun protective clothing, you will only have to wear sun protective lotions in the areas not covered such as the scalp head, face, neck, ears, hands, etc. Because sunblock alone is not enough, UPF rated sun protective clothing is recommended by The American Cancer Society, The American Academy of Dermatology and The Skin Cancer Foundation as effective UV protectant.
