Sun protection is vital for the health of your skin. All year round, any time between sunrise and sunset, make sure you have sufficient sun protection, including glasses, hats, sun cream and long sleeved clothing. It’s a simple and effective way to protect yourself against skin cancer. Reflective surfaces such as water, sand and snow increase your risk of sun damage. Plan your day to minimise your sun exposure.
Dark Side of Tanning
A tan is a sure sign our skin cells have gone into damage control, trying to protect themselves from the irreversible damage that can lead to melanoma.
SunSmart works with primary and secondary schools, early childhood centres, workplaces, health professionals, local government and sporting clubs and other organisations to promote a healthy approach to UV exposure.
