Sun Safety Week

The warm weather is approaching!!! But before you head out into (hopefully) sunny days its important to keep yourself safe from those UV rays. Sun Safety Week offers helpful tips and tricks to keep you and your loved ones safe in the sun.

Here are a few tips to keep you safe and sunburn-free:

Slip on Some Shades: Don’t forget your sunglasses! Not only do they make you look effortlessly cool, but they also protect your eyes from UV damage. Look for sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection.


Slather on the SPF: Sunscreen is your best friend. Apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher generously to all exposed skin, including your face, neck, ears, and even your lips. Remember to reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.


Stay Hydrated: The sun can dehydrate you quickly, so be sure to drink plenty of water, especially if you’re spending time outdoors. Opt for water over sugary drinks to keep yourself hydrated and healthy.

Cover Up: When you’re out and about, especially during peak sun hours (typically between 10 am and 4 pm), wear clothing that covers your skin. Lightweight, linen shirts and wide-brimmed hats can offer extra protection.


Protect Your Skin Every Day: Sun safety isn’t just for sunny days. UV rays can penetrate clouds, so make sun protection a daily habit, no matter the weather. Swapping out your usual daily moisturiser for an SPF moisturiser is a great way to protect your skin without changing your routine.
