Staying safe in the sun
In the past, people rarely worried about sun safety. It just wasn’t something that was on the radar of most people. Many would sunbathe all day with little or no protection, and children often went un-protected too. These days, with the link between the sun’s rays, and skin cancer and damage firmly established, most of us are more careful. However, it’s not always easy to know the best ways to keep safe in the sun: there is a bewildering quantity of advice out there.
Keeping out of the sun altogether, wearing clothing to cover-up, and wearing sunscreen, are the three main ways to keep skin for being damaged by the sun. It is important to remember that damage to skin is not just due to sunburn: spending a lot of time in the sun can cause premature aging even in people who tan easily. Therefore it’s important not just to avoid burning, but to avoid excessive sun exposure (a tan is in itself a sign of damaged skin).
Cancer charities and others often recommend that a facial sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher should be worn all year around, with stronger sunscreens worn during hot weather or prolonged exposure. For women, keeping the face protected is made easier by the existence of make-up with SPF added. Foundations with an SPF factor can be found in most high street make-up ranges, and they are not usually more expensive than their non-SPF equivalents. Moisturisers often also have an SPF added. During hotter weather, you might need to wear an additional sunscreen on your face, and any exposed areas of the body. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of slapping on the sunscreen before leaving the house in summer or on holiday. It’s too easy to forget to do it once you’re out, and then you risk burning.
Sometimes, sunscreen isn’t enough. In very hot weather, especially abroad in countries close to the equator (where the sun is more dangerous), it’s important to keep covered up with clothing too. Even good sunscreen doesn’t last forever, and can wash or rub off, so to be sure you’re safe, put on a hat and wear long, loose clothing. This will also help you stay cool, as your skin is shaded.
Enjoying the sun is fun – and it can be done safely with a little thought.
