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.
