You should buy her a floppy hat. She looks pale and it's *really* easy to get awful, painful sunburns out on the water.

She's been sailing her entire life and wears 50 SPF and also owns more floppy hats than a French art school.

Given some of the things I've seen you wear, I think it safe to assume that any floppy hat you'd give her would vastly overshadow the coolness of any of her existing floppy hats.

Also, sunscreen doesn't filter out any significant amount of UVA or UVB rays; it's only effective at filtering out UVC. When my lab got in this really expensive new toy, I used it to measure UV rays from sunlight passing through a sheen (much thicker than what you'd put on your skin) of various sunscreens, and UVC is the only thing it noticably filtered. (Which is dumb because far as I know, UVC doesn't even cause any skin problems.) Just a heads up to make sure YOU'RE wearing floppy hats too :)

Really? But, how come when we put on sun-screen we don't burn, but if we don't put it on, we do? Is the visible damage to the skin done by something different?

No clue, I don't know enough about anatomy to guess, even.

I do know that UV damages DNA, and that a healthy cell can repair most damage, and a healthy body will kill the cells that can't be repaired. And screwy DNA is one of the things that causes cancer.

Just wear a big floppy hat. We'll all feel better >.

She looks great, okay, yes, a little pale, and a lovely smile!
