5 sun protection tips for this summer

Solbari blog: 5 sun protection tips for this summer

UPF 50+ sun protective clothing is a must

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.

Have a sunscreen with at least a SPF 30 rating with you at all times

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.

Always leave home with a broad brim sun hat

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.

Find shade between the hours of 10am and 4pm

The UV index will be higher during these hours of the day. This is when you are most at risk of sunburn.

Only go outside if the UV index is high or above if you absolutely need to

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.

Does the sun age your skin?

Skin aging due to sun exposure is a bit like the health consequences of smoking. Smoking was cool in the 60s. Only later did people realise how addictive it is and how damaging it was for their health.
