        Been saying this for years since my diagnosis: UPF clothing and hats are your best friends. You still need to wear some sunscreen on exposed parts of the body, but at least it’s not a large surface area. I like my swim capris and long-sleeved swim shirts.
            Agreed! I’ve been saying this for years as well.
            Good to see research findings – I switched to mineral based sunscreens but because anything with oxybenzone turned my clothes and sheets orange. Glad to know that there were additional benefits! Thanks for sharing,
