Don't be fooled into thinking that dark skin is safe from sun damage. It's not as vulnerable as fair skin but it is definitely still vulnerable. The best protection is no exposure-- i.e. hat and clothes that cover the skin. Sunscreen should be used in the highest SPF and applied liberally (at least 15 min before exposure) no matter what the color of the skin. With the ozone layer degrading, the sun is more dangerous than ever.
