When is the best time to carry your Lily-Lark sun parasol? Why summer, of course! Naturally you want to protect yourself from UV rays that cause skin damage and possibly skin cancer.

In the spring, the sun's rays are also strong, so yes, you would also carry it in the spring turns into summer, on June 21st. That means the sun is equally stron earlier in the spring as it is later in the summer. Bottom line: carry a parasol.  Glad we got that settled.

Now, what are you going to do with fall? Well, no need to worry about fall, right? The sun’s rays don’t feel nearly as strong, so you don’t have to worry about it, right? Wrong! While the temperature has dropped, the sun’s UV rays are still hitting you and causing damage. So carry your Lily-Lark in the fall.

Okay, have we put that subject to bed? Yes? Good.


Except you might also carry your Lily-Lark in the winter, too. Even on a cold, cloudy day you’re exposed to up to 80% of those harmful rays. That’s why people end up with sunburns on overcast days where they don’t use any protection and spend time outside. And snow reflects sunlight, exposing you to even more rays. You know how skiers get suntanned on the slopes? You can get rays off the slopes as well. And any tan indicates that you’ve done damage to your skin.

We know, not everyone is ready to carry an umbrella or parasol in the winter. So use sunscreen in winter and we'll call it a day.
