How to stay safe in the sun...

Now that summer is approaching – surely it is – once again it’s time to consider how best to protect our skin from the sun. Many words have been written on this subject and are certainly worthy of review at this time of year.


Some Facts/Questions to consider ….

To order products, or obtain a Nutrimetics brochure please go to the Nutrimetics Enquiry Form

You can burn even on a cloudy day.

TRUE, you can, cloud only blocks some of the sun’s rays. Depending on type and thickness of cloud it may only block a third of the UV rays.

Using a moisturiser or foundation with SPF (sun protection factor) all year round will help provide protection.


I can’t get skin cancer because my routine work/hobby/holiday doesn’t include any outdoor activities.

NOT TRUE, brief exposure all year round can add up to significant damage for fair skinned people. UV rays can pass through glass so driving during the day can expose arms and hands to harm. Such cumulative exposures are linked to squamous cell cancer which although not as serious as melanoma is believed to account for up to 20% of skin cancer deaths.

Taking certain medications may increase your risk of sunburn.

TRUE, certain medications can increase the photosensitivity of skin.

If I wear a higher SPF I can stay out in the sun for longer.

NOT TRUE, wearing a higher factor will not increase the length of time protection will be given.

It’s worth noting that two of the most common mistakes when using sunscreen are choosing to use an SPF below 15 and missing spots when applying, using too little and waiting too long to re-apply. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation we need to smooth on 30 ml per adult application to obtain full coverage.

Sunlight makes you feel good of course and promotes vitamin D, which is important for bone health, but it needs to be treated with respect and the use of broad-spectrum sunscreens (which block both UVB & UVA light) is the recommended protection.
