Here are my five top tips for sun safety. My first tip is to make sure that you are wearing regular sun protection. So you should be wearing an SPF of at least 15. It should be broad-spectrum, providing cover against UVA and UVB. Tip two: Stay out of the sun between the hours of 11:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., if possible. These are the peaks sunlight hours when your skin is at most risk of burning. Tip three: Wear protective clothing. It's a good idea if you're out and about in bright sunshine to make sure that you're wearing tightly woven clothing that will cover your arms and legs and other exposed areas. Tip four: It's a good idea to also make sure you're protecting the delicate skin around the eyes, so make sure you wear a good pair of quality sunglasses. Tip five: Reapply your sunscreen frequently. To get the factor on the bottle, you need to be reapplying every 90 minutes. Also, bear in mind that ultraviolet light will reflect off water and off snow, so take particular care when you're on the beach or if you're skiing.
