can you get a tan through clouds?
Not Medical Advice: Yes, as much as 80% of the ultraviolet rays that cause tanning (and burning) in your skin pass right through clouds, fog and haze. Many people find themselves with a sunburn because they were out on a cloudy day and didn't think they needed to use sunscreen, a painful mistake. Sunscreen, with an SPF rating of at least 15 should be used on all exposed skin when outdoors.
