Clouds can’t shade the need for sunscreen

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – We all know to use sunscreen on bright, sunny days, but what happens when there are more clouds than sun?

Ultraviolet light can still come through even if the day is shady or cloudy. You won’t get quite as much UV exposure, but there is an 80 percent of UV that can peek through the clouds.

So dermatologists recommend that you wear sunscreen to prevent sunburns, aging skin, brown spots or for general healthy skin and to avoid skin cancer.

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
