According to a recent survey by the Skin Cancer Foundation men are twice as likely to die from melanoma as women. This difference increases with age. So…with one exception, the sun protection rules for men are really not a lot different from the rules for women. The exception. A beard does provide some sun protection of up to SPF 15. But the beard must be thick and 3.5 inches to achieve that result, so don't depend on your short, neatly-trimmed beard or shadow for much protection.

And there are now more choices than ever. There are classically-styled shirts and pants in lots of colors and fabrics, and also some really new takes on sun protection. So what's new?
