Having Fun In The Sun
At last the sun has come out! Holidays are approaching and it’s time to have some fun. The sun can improve our sense of wellbeing: just 15 minutes of sunlight on our skin per day gives us all the vitamin D we need. Have you noticed how people smile more when the sun shines?
So have fun in the sun, but keep everyone safe from harmful UV rays.
Use a sunscreen with a minimum Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15, preferably higher, especially for young children - or keep them covered
Apply it at least every 2 hours, wherever the sun’s rays touch your skin - more regularly if you are swimming
If you’re in the sun for long periods, cover up and wear a hat. Take breaks in the shade
Remember to keep hydrated - a small cup of water every 15 minutes is recommended
