1. Use 5-Star UVA rated sun protection
It’s very important to use sun protection with a high SPF and a 5-star UVA rating to give you and your family broad protection against the sun’s rays.*
2. Drink plenty of water
Spending time outside enjoying the warm weather can lead to dehydration, so make sure to drink plenty of water to keep yourself safe in the sun.
3. Cover up with a hat and long sleeves
Covering up your skin is the best way to avoid sunburn and long-lasting skin damage when out in the sun.
4. Wear sun glasses to protect your eyes
The sun’s rays can also damage your eyes. You should always avoid looking directly at the sun and wearing sun glasses can help protect your eyes when enjoying the warm weather.
5. Seek shade and cover up to minimise exposure between 11 & 3
The sun’s rays are at their most powerful between the hours of 11 and 3. Seek shade and cover up with clothing whilst out and about to minimise sun exposure.
* The star rating is a measure of the absorbance of UVA relative to UVB. Other brands not displaying a star rating symbol may still offer high levels of UVA protection.
