Sun Protection

Enjoy the sun, but enjoy it safely!!

Over the past few decades there has been a clear correlation between the incidence in the number of cases of skin cancer and the increase in popularity of outdoor recreational activities. Research has shown us that roughly four out of five cases of skin cancer are preventable, as the damage UV rays cause is avoidable. Overexposure to the sun`s harmful rays will have long term effects on the skin.

Limit time in the midday sun

The sun is at its strongest between 10am and 4pm. Where possible avoid prolonged exposure during these hours.

Watch for the UV index

Keep an eye on the weather reports and check the sun index. This invaluable piece of information will allow you prevent over exposure to the sun`s harmful rays.

Use shade wisely

At times when the sun is at its hottest, please remember that although a great solution to keeping out of the direct sunlight, shaded structures such as patio sun awnings and retractable awnings do not provide 100% protection against UV rays. Simple things like wearing a hat or a quality pair of sun glasses will greatly reduce the effect of the sun`s rays on your eyes and skin during the hottest parts of the day.

Protecting children

Protecting young children for over exposure to the sun will significantly reduce the risk of developing skin cancer in the future. Excessive exposure to direct sunshine is especially harmful to young children. It is vitally important that babies and infants are kept out of the sun entirely. Children should be provided with a shaded area to play in.
