In brief: All shade helps
The more shade you give your skin, the better. Sunscreens help up to a point but keeping the sun off your skin is the best.

In brief: A good start
Exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun is the greatest risk factor for developing skin cancers.
Any way you reduce your exposure will reduce your risks of developing skin cancers. This includes protective clothing and sun screen on exposed skin.
