Here's three easy steps to stay safe in the sun ☀️

Too much ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can damage skin cells and cause skin cancer. In the UK almost 9 in 10 cases of melanoma skin cancer could be prevented by staying safe in the sun and avoiding sunbeds.

No matter where you are, whether at home or on holiday, it’s important to protect yourself from the sun. The sun is often strong enough to cause damage in the UK between mid-March and mid-October, even when it’s cold or cloudy.

By using these three steps together, you can protect your skin and enjoy the sun safely:

- Spend time in the shade, especially between 11am and 3pm in the UK.
- Cover up with clothes, a wide-brimmed hat and UV protection sunglasses.
- Apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and 4 or 5 stars. Use it generously, reapply regularly and use together with shade and clothing.

We've partnered with NIVEA Sun for over 10 years to help you enjoy the sun safely.
