I do when I walk in the mornings but I was told once we need sun for vitamin D so I go in summer at 7 am when the sun is not strong. Otherwise, I dont avoid the sun if going out, but do not sun bake or deliverately sit in the sun ever.
Life must go on even though it is sunny. I find that I get an incredible amount of colour on my arms simply from driving the car !! It's unavoidable. I do leave my gardening until after dinner when it isn't as hot. I walk in the evenings as well or earlier in the day ( whenever I am home to do it !) Wearing sunscreen should assist in protecting against the sun's rays, and make sure you keep re applying it. Hiding inside isn't the answer.
I've never been much good in the sun but I do have a woeful habit of suddenly deciding to go outside and water the yard or do weeding at midday . . . then I get burnt. I bought a sprinkler to try to avoid this. I don't sunbake or seek out the sun deliberately.
I was shocking as a girl and slathered myself in oil and lay in the sun all day. I am fortunate my skin is still fairly good. I wear sunscreen and protective clothes when in the sun. I avoid spending time in the sun as much as possible in the warmer months.
In winter especially if unwell, I will still sunbake..maybe for 20 minutes in the mornings. I feel the sun has healing qualities.
As a girl when people tried to warn that sunbaking would make me look older, I thought that would be good. The nativity of youth!
I was a beach babe when younger. However as I've aged and found less free time, the only sun I try for is sitting in semi-shade with a glass of wine and a book on a weekend but its been far too hot for that or even 10 minutes early morning so I look for somewhere out of the sun and with a breeze if possible.
