‘Ice-cream weather on its way’ says MSN – and so is the sun protection

by

It looks like we’re set for some warmer weather over the next few weekends, and since it was revealed that we Brits spend six months of our lives chin-wagging about the weather, it’ll definitely give us something to talk about.

As we ditch the scarves and cardi’s and delve into our freezers for the icepops, we should also be thinking about protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.

After covering up from the cold harsh weather we’ve had over winter, and the more recent cold snaps following a milder April, the skin will be more prone to sunburn and damage, so make sure you take care over the next few weeks.

Cover up with a hat, wear Sun Protection Factor 30 and seek shade during peaks times throughout the day.

A tan may look good for a few weeks, but it’s not worth the painful sunburn and long term health risks that come with it.

Enjoy the sun and warmer months – just do it sensibly!
