First chance to use my UV umbrella β€” amazing. So much cooler under it. Definitely recommend. Still feel like a bit of a tool using it, but the sun is gender-blind, it tries to kill us all equally.
  • @jamesvandyne As someone who have sensory issues with sunscreen, does using UV umbrellas protect suffuciently to the point that it can replace sunscreen? My guess would be no, but I’m asking anyway.

  • @torb I think so, as long as you stay under it, yes. These aren't the frilly cloth ones you might have seen, but rather they have a black layer inside that is rated to block either 99.9% or 100% of UV. The experience is like always walking in the shade.
