    Relatively new to DLE. I have been told to "stay out of the sun". I wear a daily sunscreen with Mexoryl for UVA blocking, and have started an additional SPF of 85 now that the weather is warming and I am outside more. I have readjusted my wardrobe to include some hats and longer sleeved shirts. I guess I am wondering if this is enough? I like to garden and have two little kids - we are outside alot. How seriously and to what extent do I need to be "staying out of the sun"? What does that mean? Trying to figure it all out. Thanks for your thoughts.
