Doctor's advice for getting
the most out of the sun
Get the right attitude
Avoid sun between
11 pm and 3 pm.
Do not expose babies or young children to direct sunlight.
Use clothing to protect your skin
(hat, sunglasses, t-shirt etc.).
Re-apply your sun care product regularly to stay protected, especially after perspiring, swimming or towel-drying skin.
Apply sun protection before exposing your skin to the sun.
Using sun protection does not make it safe to stay out in the sun longer.
Over-exposure to the sun poses a serious threat to your health.
Check moles regularly using the ABCDE rule.
