To Prevent Sunburn and/or Windburn

  • Cover up with a long-sleeved jacket, hat and gloves.
  • Wear wraparound sunglasses or goggles that offer 100 percent UV protection.
  • Pay close attention to the underside of the chin and ears.
  • Wear sun block such as zinc oxide on exposed and sun-sensitive areas. If outdoors for long periods, you may need to apply more than once.
  • Wear items like ski masks, which will cover most of the skin, leaving very little exposed to the wind and sun.
