Sun Safe Summer

Sun Safe Summer

If you’ve experienced an Australian summer before, you’ll know that it only takes going outside for a few minutes to get a nasty sunburn. Australia has some of the highest levels of UV radiation in the world, so it’s no surprise the country has been deemed “ the skin cancer capital of the world”.

Here’s how you can have a sun safe summer:

Use sunscreen everyday, and reapply often!

Apply your first coat of sun cream, 15 to 20 minutes before sun exposure. then reapply every 2 hours, especially if you’re swimming or sweating a lot.

Vitamin C and Sunscreen - A Power Couple

Double down on all those skin-protecting benefits. When you pair these two, you boost the effectiveness of your skin’s sun defence capabilities and further protect against free radicals. Just remember to use your vitamin c first.

Use enough

The recommended amount is approximately one teaspoon for each arm, leg, body front, body back and face (including neck and ears). That equates to a total of 35mL (approximately seven teaspoons) for a full body application.

Remember to slip, slop, slap!

Slip on some sun-protective clothing that covers as much skin as possible.

Slop on broad spectrum, water resistant SPF 30 (or higher) sunblock sunscreen.

Slap on a hat – broad brim or legionnaire style to protect your face, head, neck and ears.

Seek shade.

Slide on some sunglasses – make sure they meet Australian Standards.
