Article: Will wearing black swimwear make me tan more?

Will wearing black swimwear make me tan more?

Wearing black swimwear doesn't actually make you tan more compared to wearing other colours. This is because your skin needs exposure to UV (ultraviolet) radiation in order to tan and wearing black clothing doesn't affect it's strength.

However, black clothing can absorb more sunlight and heat than lighter colours, which might make you feel warmer while out in the sun. This warmth may make you feel like the sun is more intense on your skin but it will not be increasing your exposure to the sun.

Please remember that prolonged exposure to the sun without proper protection, regardless of clothing color, can increase the risk of sunburn, skin damage, and long-term health issues such as skin cancer. So if you're planning to spend time in the sun, it's essential to use sunscreen, seek shade, and wear protective clothing regardless of its colour.
