Safety Tips
SUN SMART
It might be 150 million kilometers away but its damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays take only ten minutes to reach us and not much longer than that to start burning our skin. Whatever your skin colour, being unprotected in the sun increases your chances of getting skin cancer.  
SUNSCREEN  
  works best if you put it on about 20 minutes before you go outside. Put on more every couple of hours, or after you’ve been swimming (or sweating). Use sunscreen every day before you go outside - before you burn!  
SUNSCREEN  
  doesn’t give 100 per cent protection from UV radiation and should never be used to help you tan or extend your time in the sun. For best protection, follow the 3 steps on the right.  
TANNING  
  People who burn and don’t tan have the highest risk of skin cancer, but people who tan easily get it too. In fact, having a skin that tans easily can make you careless about sun protection.
A tan is a sign that your skin has been damaged by UV radiation.

  02. Wear hats that shade your face and neck, tightly-woven clothing that can block the sun’s penetrating rays and sunglasses that stop UV light reaching your eyes.
