Summer might be over, but sunlight is not going anywhere: the sun will still rise and set, bathing us with natural light and who says daylight says UV. And particularly UV-A.
The time of year, the type of weather (clouds or no clouds), where you live and where you spend your time (indoors or outdoors) impact the amount of sunlight you’re exposed to, and consequently the amount of UV radiation and the potential damages. The closer you move towards the equator, the higher the levels of UV radiation. And those who think that being inside eliminates risks, they are wrong.
