I haven't had any issues in the sun. I have olive skin and so have only been burnt a handful of times despite multiple hours in the sun. Ive read so much about the photosensitivity in lupus and i was so worried that, especially given the gaping hole in the ozone layer above Australia, i would be one of those people. especially having spent most of my life in the sun. though having said that i do take more precautions in the sun these days, i order a 50+ suncream from europe (given 30 is as high as i can find in Australia) and usually wear this every day.
