Be Sun Aware...here are some tips and information on how to stay safe in the sun.

 

How can I stay safe in the sun? 

 

  • Remember to always wear sunscreen (at least SPF15) and ensure children always wear sunscreen! 
  • Babies and children need extra care as their skin is more sensitive than adult skin
  • Avoid the sun between the hours of 11am - 3pm - stay in the shade and cover up! 
  • Remember to use waterproof sunscreen if you’re going in the sea or a swimming pool

 

What if I get sunburnt?

 

  • Gently sponge the affected skin area with cool water before applying calming lotion
  • Seek medical attention if your skin blisters or you feel unwell
  • Avoid the sun until your skin has completely healed
