Research has proven that not all fabrics, especially summer weight fabrics offer enough protection from the sun.  Sunlight includes rays of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and exposure to those rays can lead to sunburn, premature skin aging and skin cancer.

If you are planning on being in the sun, you should think about protecting your eyes as well.  Wearing the best sunglasses may be a good idea.
