News - July 2015
Whatever your age, the best way to enjoy the sun safely and protect your skin from sunburn is to use a combination of shade, clothing and sunscreen. Children and teenagers might need a reminder or a helping hand, but setting a good example yourself is a great way to help them learn and get into good habits.
When the sun is strong or you’re at risk of burning:
- Spend time in the shade between 11am and 3pm.
- Cover up with a t-shirt, hat and sunglasses.
- Use a sunscreen with a protection level of at least SPF15 and 4 stars. Use it generously and reapply regularly.
Shade: One of the best ways to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays is to spend some time in the shade.
Covering up: When there's no shade around, the best way to protect your skin from the sun is with loose clothing, a wide-brimmed hat and good quality sunglasses.
Sunscreen: Sunscreens will not protect us completely from sun damage on their own. However, they can be useful for protecting the parts of the skin we can't shade or cover. This is why we recommend using sunscreens together with shade or clothing to avoid getting too much UV exposure. More information is available on the Cancer Research website.
