Dermatologists recommend sun protection clothing as the first line of defence against sunburn, skin ageing and melanoma skin cancer. UPF 50+ is the highest sun protective rating available for clothing in Australia.
SPF sunscreen is great for protecting areas of your body that are not covered by UPF sun protective clothing or a broad brim sun hat. Don’t forget to apply at least 20 minutes before you go outside and always remember to reapply every 2 hours or if you go in the water or perspire.
A broad brim sun hat provides the best sun protection for your face, nose, neck and ears. a broad brim sun hat incorporates a brim length of at least 6cm. Legionnaire sun hats are great for sun protection because they also incorporate a neck cover which provides extra protection.
The UV index will be higher during these hours of the day. This is when you are most at risk of sunburn.
Staying indoors on high or above UV index days is recommended. In the event that you have to go outside, follow the other four sun protection tips above.

In this blog we explore if it is possible to get sun burnt through clothing. People don't realise that they are routinely exposed to the sun through their regular clothing. Dermatologists agree that the best way to protect yourself from the sun is to wear UPF 50+ sun protective clothing. UPF 50+ means that at least 98% of UV rays are blocked. UPF 50+ is the highest accreditation for sun protection achievable in the World.
