I had read that 10 minutes of sunlight per day could be sufficient for whichever type of D is synthesized by sunlight.
I'd be scared of sunlight too if I lived in Australia. Isn't there a big hole in the ozone about it?
I use suncreen now, but did not for years (and wish I had). I don't use it all the time though; only if I know I'm going to be out over an hour or so. It feels too unnatural for me to not let my skin absorb the sun, and I love that feeling too much.
In China, many women wear some type of stockings on their legs--with shorts or skirts in the hot summer. They even wear them on their feet with sandals and jeans. I could never wear those damn things in the summer or more recently, at any time of year. But the women in China have beautiful skin!
