Summer is here!!  

If you are a sun lover then going to the beach and tanning is one your favourite things to do while on holiday.

You love to lie in the sun in the sun and work on that golden brown tan, but don’t want to compromise on sun safety and protection.

When packing your beach bag make sure you include the most important item – sun screen. It is vital that you are sufficiently protected when stepping into the sun this December. The sun’s UV rays can be very harmful and can increase the risk of cancer.


There are 3 main types of UV rays, of which two can increase your risk of cancer


UV Rays1.    UVA rays: 

These rays can age the skin and cause damage to the skin cell DNA. These rays are responsible for the long-term skin damage such as wrinkles, but they are also thought to play a role in skin cancer.


BE AWARE:Tanning beds give off large amounts of UVA rays and has been found to increase the risk of skin cancer. You must protect your skin against these rays.


2.    UVB rays:

These rays also damage the skin cell DNA, but are responsible for causing sunburn. These rays are also known to increase your risk of cancer.


3.    UVC rays:

UVC rays do not breach the atmospheric barrier and so we are not subject to this type of sun damage.


As UVA and UVB rays increase your risk of cancer it is important to use a sun screen that protects you against both rays.
