2. Avoid going out between 11 am to 3 pm.
3. Sun protective clothing, head gears and even UV protected sun glasses are a must have.
4. Sunscreen usage- A particularly daunting challenge is to choose the right sunscreen. Most of the sunscreens do not offer broad spectrum protection because of the unavailability of good UV- A Sunscreen agents. A Good SPF only ensures protection against UVB while there are no accepted standard criteria for UV-A protection.

Minimum SPF of 30 with Adequate UVA protection is must.
