Be smart with Summer

Written by Janine Duffy

Did you know? 

UV (UltraViolet) radiation can not be felt! This type of UV is dangerous for this reason. It's responsible for tanning, sunburns and sun damaged skin and in unfortunate circumstances, skin cancer. 

Queensland alone has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, but with some handy tips from us and the Cancer Council QLD, you can minimise your risk.

  • SPF 30+ or higher eg. Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 by dermalogica
  • People who have fair and sensitive skin may need to re-apply as early as every 30min
  • Hats
  • Sunnies
  • Long summer dresses
  • Hang out in the shade, or under an umbrella
  • Rashies when swimming is also an awesome option for anyone young and old
  • Some makeups even protect you, so wearing one over your SPF is even more protection eg. Mineral Velvet Cream Foundation SPF15 by issada
