Went to a festival at an organic farm this past weekend and the sun "surprised" me I asked my husband to get my umbrella from the car even though I had a hat, my arms were bare...
This is the time we should all be careful about the sun, springtime. Most people with Lupus have sun sensitivity. I, myself, can feel achey and feverish and extremely tired after sun exposure. I can even end up getting Discoid Lupus sores.(haven't had them in a long time now)
Even though the weather is not quite hot the spring sun is still VERY strong! Don't be fooled. Now when I say I protect myself, I would rather use clothing, hats, umbrellas and good old tree shade. Most times I go out in the early morning or the early evening. The sun is the hottest/strongest between 10:00am -3:00 pm so stay in at those times or protect yourself very well!
There are so many toxic chemicals in sunscreens be VERY cautious of what you put on your skin!
