UV Index 3-5: moderate exposure, protection is required. Use sunscreen with sufficient sun protection factor, at least twice the UVI, for bare skin. Hat and sunglasses are advisable.




UV Index 6-7: high exposure, protection is required. Use sunscreen with sufficient sun protection factor, at least twice the UVI, for bare skin. Wear hat, sunprotective clothing and sunglasses.



UV Index 8 and more: very high exposure, extra protection is required. Avoid being outside during midday. Use sunscreen with sufficient sun protection factor, at least twice the UVI, for bare skin. Wear hat, sunprotective clothing and sunglasses.
