…protection is better than cure
Sun protection is the best way to avoid sunburn, even on cloudy days.
Babies, children, and people with fair skin or red or blonde hair are generally at a greater risk of sunburn. So are people who don’t go out in sun often, as their levels of melanin pigment in the skin will be lower, which increases the risk of burning more quickly.
Long term skin damage from the sun or sunbeds can lead to skin cancer.
UVB rays cause most sunburns and can cause skin cancers. UVA rays go deeper into the skin and are responsible for signs of ageing.
To protect against UV rays, stay in the shade, cover up with appropriate clothes, hats and sunglasses, and use sunscreen with a protection factor of at least SPF15, and re-apply it often.
Remember though that the body does need some exposure to sunlight to help produce vitamin D for healthy bones. Going outside regularly, without sun protection, for a couple of minutes each day should be enough.
