Default Do Eskimos wear sunscreen?



From the UK if I travel to Spain I have to wear sunscreen so I don't burn, but at home I rarely have to wear sunscreen. If an Eskimo were to come to the UK would they have to wear sunscreen all the time as do in Spain

I don't know but I just generally burn or stay pale !

But I do know that eskimoes have like millions of names for the word snow ! ( Ok maybe that's an exaggeration, they have loads.)

no they don't... thats why true eskimoes skin is very dark... to reflect light...

just like africans... they don't wear sunscreen due to their dark skin reflecting light

you wear sunscreen most likely because your skin is pale (or at least more pale than eskimoes)
