UV. It All Adds Up

(from SunSmart)

“Anywhere you go UV will damage unprotected skin. And it just keeps adding up.”

We usually think of sunburn as something that happens at the beach. But did you know more of us get sunburnt during day-to-day activities like hanging the washing, weekend BBQs or heading outside to grab lunch?

We might not think of these everyday moments as times we need sun protection, but this “incidental” UV damage also contributes to our risk of cancer.

Your skin is like a memory bank – it remembers all the sunburns, all the tans and all the time you spent exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation, without sun protection.

Over time, this UV damage can result in premature ageing, eye damage, sunspots, and ultimately, skin cancer.

To prevent UV damage – and cut your risk of skin cancer – protect your skin this summer.
