Here's an idea for skylight over the shower.
I can tell you from living and camping in Louisiana.....it does get hot and every little bit of shade you can provide does help. I covered my skylight above the shower on the inside using a 1/4" thick silver bubble wrap type material. This was done on the inside above the shower. I cut it the size needed and it is held in place with 6 white plastic window screen clips. Remove 6 of the factory screws that are presently used to hold up the inside of the skylight trim and install the clips. This gives the advantage to remove the bubble wrap covering whenever. Note: after measuring and cutting the bubble wrap to size, and to make it a little stiffer and to prevent sagging, I used a heavy foil tape to wrap around the complete edge of the material. I had thought of using a 1/2" thick piece of Styrofoam cut to fit inside the frame but attaching it would be a little more difficult.
All material can be purchased at Lowe's or similar hardware establishments.

For the living area skylight, I bet the previously mentioned silver stuff cut to size and laid directly on top of the pleated cover would help.

It does indeed. I too have the "cushioned square skylight covers" covering the skylights during summer months. I took it a step further by placing a piece of the silver stuff on top of them. As I said, every little bit helps.

Thanks for all the help. Nice to "talk" to others who have been there done that. Will let you'll know which way I go.
