During Skin Cancer Awareness Week @cancercouncilaustralia
reminds us to use a combination of sun protection measures on days when the maximum UV level is higher than 3:
– Slip on sun-protective clothing.
– Slop on SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen 20 minutes before going outdoors (reapply every 2 hours).
– Slap on a broad-brimmed hat that protects your face, head, neck and ears.
– Seek shade.
– Slide on wrap-around sunglasses (that meet Australian Standard AS/NZS 1067).
