SunSmart Cody Knows How To Slip Slop Slap and Wrap…

 

It is important to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, especially in the summer months. Stay in the shade when the sun is most harmful, between 10am and 4pm. Use a 30+ SPF sunscreen and wrap in a t-shirt and sunhat where possible.

Apply your sunscreen every 2 hours when swimming and every 2-3 hours for everyday activities. Keeping your skin protected from harmful UV rays helps prevent skin cancer including Melanoma from developing.

See your doctor to check any moles or skin spots if you are concerned or there are any changes at all. Early detection is best.
