This woman was spending some time outdoors on a sunny day working in her yard. She had applied sunscreen to the sun-exposed skin of her face, and chose to wear a long-sleeved shirt and denim pants, all of which would help to protect her from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. She was also wearing a pair of glasses, a hat and gloves to protect her eyes, scalp and hands respectively. She'd also packed some water in order to avoid the possibility of dehydration.
