Enjoying warm sunny days, do not forget to monitor the UV index. This indicator of solar energy indicates the level of ultraviolet research. It is already widely known that it is necessary to protect yourself from the sun not only because of possible burns, but also for the health of the body as a whole.
Modern technologies make it possible to check the radiation power of the Sun at any time using the iPhone or Apple Watch and the standard weather application installed in them. The UV index directly determines how long you can stay in the sun without harm to the body.

Clarification of UV Index Values
So, you got the index value, it remains to understand what it means. The number you saw in the Weather app for ultraviolet light indicates how quickly you can burn out in the sun or how long it’s safe to stay in it. We give a classical interpretation of values. Please note that we are talking about skin unprotected by special means, while the body of each person also individually responds to radiation.
0: the energy of the sun is practically absent, the skin does not blush, burns can not happen.
1-2: almost no solar energy, the skin turns red within 50-100 minutes the probability of a burn is zero.
3-4: weak solar energy, the skin turns red after 25-35 minutes, a small chance of sunburn.
5-6: moderate solar energy, 15-25 minutes are allowed for a light tan of the skin, then it turns red
7-8: strong solar energy, sunbathing is permissible for 10-15 minutes, after which the sunburn occurs quickly.
9-10: increased solar energy, the skin turns red within 10 minutes, a very high probability of burns.
It is important to know that air temperature has no direct effect on solar energy. On a cool but sunny day, the power of the sun can be even stronger than on a warm day.
