SUN ADVICE

From April to September, when the UV index exceeds 3, it’s a good idea to follow the prevailing sun advice and create good sun habits for you and your loved ones. Start by using your common sense, respect your skin type and simply avoid too much sun.

 

We have collected the best sun advice so you can feel safe in the sun:

  • SEEK SHADE BETWEEN 11 AM AND 3 PM
    Stay out of the sun between the hours of 11am and 3pm when the intensity of the sun’s rays is strongest. Do not stay in the sun too long even when using sun protection. Remember that sand, water and snow reflects and amplifies the UV rays from the sun.
  • WEAR LIGHT CLOTHING AND SUNGLASSES
    You can protect yourself with light clothing, a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • USE ENOUGH SUNSCREEN
    Always remember to apply enough sunscreen to achieve the protection stated on the product. An adult should use appr. 30-40 ml or a good handful for a full body coverage and about 20 ml for a child. It fits fairly well with a 100 ml sunscreen equivalent to 2-3 applications per adult. If you apply less sunscreen, the sun protection factor and protection will decrease significantly.
  • KEEP KIDS OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT
    Never expose babies and young children to direct sunlight. Children should have extra protection against the ultraviolet rays. Use sunscreens with high sun protection factors, light clothes and a sunhat. Good sun habits as child can reduce the risk for sunburned skin, skin damages and skin cancer.
