Ok, so summer is here for a while, it seems. I'm stocking up on sun cream and hats. My problem is the reflected UVs. I saw that Sunsibility does these silver umbrellas with black lining so less uv rays are reflected on the face but has anyone tried blocking the reflection at the point if origin? I'm thinking of putting a large black cloth/blanket on the patio under the chairs/sofa onto which I sit, then use one of their silver/black umbrellas above my head - the idea being that the black floor will absorb the uv rays, so less will be reflected up.
Has anyone tried this? It is a pity to stay indoors all day every day when it is so beautiful outside. The other alternative will be to cover my face entirely - I saw Sunsibility does face covers too.
