One should consider that heat index numbers are for shaded settings and light wind. Direct exposure to sunlight could raise the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.
Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'feels like', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Additional elements encompassing metabolic differences, the degree of physical activity, and attire can impact the individual's perception of temperature. Being aware that direct sunlight can impact the felt heat might mean an increase in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially vital to children. Kids generally face higher risks than adults as they sweat less. Along with their large skin surface compared to their small bodies and higher heat production due to their activities, their vulnerability is increased.

Your best bet for sun defense on the face, eyes, and neck is a hat with a wide brim.
