Stats released today have shown that nearly 50% of Brits are still ignoring the warnings when it comes to sun damage. A staggering 46% of us admitted being badly burnt at some point this summer with the exposed areas like face, arms shoulders and neck the worst affected.
While the summer is now drawing to an end, the dangers of over exposure are here to stay. With the threat of skin cancer and skin ageing associated with UV rays its vital we protect ourselves all year round against these very real risks.
Earlier in the summer I wrote an article for FashionBeans.com featuring tips and product recommendations on how to stay ‘Sun Safe’. In the light of these new figures I think it’s vital we refresh our memories and ensure that the next time we step out in the sun’s harmful rays, we’re prepared with both the knowledge and the right products.
