Choose suncare products with a 5-star rating to protect from UVA radiation, associated with skin ageing. A high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) rating, 30 or above, will provide greater protection from UVB radiation.
Time it right.
Skin needs time to absorb sunscreen, so apply generously 20-30 minutes before going out. Reapply at least every 2 hours.
The sun is strongest in the middle of the day, so find some shade between 11am and 3pm, especially if you are fair skinned.
Clothing should be your first line of defence against sun damage. Wear a hat, T-shirt and UV protective sunglasses. Don’t miss our Kids’ Summer Fashion Specialbuys, with hats, sunglasses, T-shirts and more on sale in store and online from Sunday 16 July.
