It’s important for everyone to spend some time in the sun. It’s also just as important to be familiar with the basic sun safety principles.
Always follow these Sun Safety Tips to minimise your chances of skin damage:
- Always wear sunscreen with a high SPF – SPF shields your skin from harmful UV rays, protects against sunburn and helps to slow the aging process
- Cover up- wear sunglasses, protective clothing and a wide-brim hat
- Stay in the shade near midday when the sun is strongest and reduce time in the sun before and after 3 hours of noon
- Take precautions to care for your skin after sun exposure
Your bodies need enough vitamin D to help produce calcium for healthy bones. However, regular or excessive exposure to the sun’s UV rays will increase your chances of developing sun spots, moles and even skin cancer. It also accelerates the aging process.
