The Best Sun Protection

Posted: Updated:

A new study says covering up at the beach is just as effective in protecting the skin from damaging ultraviolet rays.

The study looked at the effects of UV-B radiation on existing moles.  Researchers found that both suncreen and clothing can partially prevent UV-B effects, but the coverups worked a little better.

Researchers say the best practice may be to combine both lines of defense.
