About the Sun and Tanning
• Take sensible precautions
to avoid sunburn, particularly in children.
• Limit unprotected exposure to solar radiation, especially during the
hottest midday hours between 10am and 2pm.
• Seek shade wherever possible, but remember sunburn can occur even
while in partial shade.
• Sunburn can also occur while in the water, and can be equally damaging
from the high level of reflected UV radiation off snow or sand.
• Covering your head with a wide-brimmed hat or cap, reduces exposure to
the face, head and neck.
• Cover exposed skin with protective clothing, such as long-sleeved
• Sunglasses should be designed to exclude both direct and peripheral
exposure of the eye.
• Apply sunscreen with high SPFs (minimum 15), to uncovered skin. Apply
generously, and reapply frequently.
• Certain prescribed drugs, medicines and cosmetics may make you more
sensitive to sunlight.
FACTS ABOUT SUN PROTECTION
• Sunlight is essential to all life on earth, and most of its effects
are beneficial. However, a component of sunlight that is invisible to
our e yes is ultraviolet, or UV light. As we travel to hotter climates
on vacations, and suntan as often as possible, incidences of skin cancer
rise dramatically. Research shows that nearly all skin cancers are
caused by the sun, and fall into two main types: Non melanomas, although
rarely fatal, account for about 5% of registered malignancies, and
predominantly affect the elderly. Malignant melanomas, on the other
hand, occur in a much younger age group, and account for just under 10%
of cancers in the 20- 39 age group. This rate has doubled over the last
fifteen years and is now the cause of 1 in 25 cancer deaths in this age
group. Taking more care of our skin in the sun could help to drastically
reduce this statistic.
• Sunlight contains two types of UV radiation, known simply as UVA and
UVB. Both types cause changes to the skin, but there are important
differences. Remember: A is for Aging, B for Burning. UVA penetrates
deeply, leading to drying, wrinkling, sagging (from reduced elasticity)
and blemishes (such as ‘liver spots’). UVB, produces surface damage
ranging from a slight redness to severe blistering.
• The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of a cream or lotion, indicates the
level of protection offered against the effects of prolonged exposure to
sunlight. It is the ratio of the UV exposure needed to produce minimal
erythema (redness) on a skin site protected by the sun cream, compared
to the UV exposure needed to produce comparable erythema on unprotected
skin. The greater the SPF number, the longer the skin can be exposed to
direct sunlight without damage. Nevertheless, even when using a good
sunscreen, common sense is vital!
