"UVB rays do not pen­e­trate glass but UVA rays do. In ad­di­tion, flu­o­res­cent light­ing (though min­i­mal) emit ul­tra­vi­o­let rays as well. It’s best to de­velop the habit of ap­ply­ing (and re-ap­ply­ing) sun­screen on a daily ba­sis, what­ever your en­vi­ron­men­tal cir­cum­stances."

myth

YOU Can’t GET sun­burnt on a CLOUDY DAY.

"Ul­tra­vi­o­let rays can eas­ily pass through clouds. Rays re­flect off con­crete, sand, wa­ter, and snow—so one can even burn while in the shade. UV rays also pen­e­trate car win­dows and ev­ery day cloth­ing. Ap­ply­ing win­dow tints in your car (in ad­di­tion to us­ing sun­screen) may pro­vide fur­ther pro­tec­tion."
