Shape (Malaysia) - - HEALTH RIGHT NOW -

It takes at least this amount of time in the sun around noon with your face, neck, arms, and hands ex­posed for skin to pro­duce the rec­om­mended daily dose of vi­ta­min D. (That’s if you’re su­per­fair like a red­head. Bump it up to about five min­utes if you’re blonde or seven if you’re olive; if you’re darker, make it up to a full 21.) Now fac­tor in sun­screen: For ev­ery 10 SPF you put on, you’ll need to in­crease your sun ex­po­sure ten­fold to get all the D you need. SOURCE: So­lar Ra­di­a­tion Re­search Group
