  • Avoid exposing your skin to sunlight between 10h00 and 15h00

  • Wear wide brimmed hats and clothing that is thick enough to prevent UV light penetration

  • Wear UV400 rated sunglasses only. Cheap non-UV400 sunglasses will damage your eyes more than if you wore no sunglasses at all. Wear wrap-around sunglasses where possible.

  • Wear long sleeve shirts and long pants where possible

  • Use full body bathing costumes for children

  • Avoid exposing babies less than 1 year to direct sunlight.

  • Most sun damage occurs before the age of 18 educating children on the dangers of exposure is critical to avoid problems later in their life.

  • Apply broad spectrum sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher) before going into the sun. Apply liberally and spread sunscreen evenly, being cautious not to miss out spots

  • Re-apply sunscreen early and often. Re-apply sunscreen after swimming, excessive perspiration, or towel drying

  • Be aware of reflective surfaces such as water, beach sand and concrete which will reflect UV Rays and cause burning
