    When you're standing up, it's closer to the sun.

    the scalp is also very thin. The face generates alot of oil too, so that acts almost like a tanning oil. Less hair on the face too. When your body get's burned, it's almost always the back and shoulders where there's less hair to block that rays. Has anyone ever even got burned on their legs? I've never heard of it.
