Overview

Sunny days naturally draw people out-of-doors: we love to feel the warm, nourishing effect of direct sunlight on our bodies. But these days, the dangers of overexposure to the sun's rays are well known to everyone, and simply applying sunscreen isn't enough anymore. How do you choose the best sunscreen and sunglasses? What protective clothing should you wear? What role does global warming play? The answers to these and many more questions are found in this new pocket-sized handbook, released just in time for new labeling laws that require sunscreen packaging to include a "no-guarantee" disclaimer. Outdoor expert Buck Tilton shares the latest information and research on protecting yourself from the sun, with tips on determining your risk based on location, altitude, and time of day, as well as what foods help protect skin, and self-monitoring for signs of a problem. Armed with sun smarts, readers will be better prepared and protected when heading outdoors.
