Protect your skin
Slip on some sun protective clothing - thick, tightly woven and darker coloured materials means better protection that covers as much skin as possible.
Slop on broad spectrum, water resistant SPF30+ sunscreen. Put it on 20 minutes before you go outdoors and every two hours afterwards. Remember to protect your lips with SPF lip balm.
Slap on a hat broad brimmed or a legionnaires cap – that protects your face, head, neck and ears
Seek shade-especially between 11 am and 3 pm. This is the time when the zenith angles of the sun is at its most intense as the path of the UV radiation is at its shortest through the ozone layer. Please note on cloudy days the UV radiation is just as intense but because of lower infrared radiation the heat is not as intense and thus can lead to overexposure to UV.
Slide on some sunglasses – make sure they meet Australian Standards.
