Sun protection is always important!

With the weather playing tricks on us at the moment, you could be forgiven for forgetting that we’re a few weeks into Summer. 

Though that means you might not feel like you need to be concerned about sunburn, it’s important to remember to take care and protect your skin! In fact, you might even find that your skin is extra sensitive after so much time spent inside over the recent years. 


The most important steps to remember, especially if you’re heading out for a day outside, are slip, slop, slap, seek, slide

  • SLIP on sun-protective clothing
  • SLOP on broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen
  • SLAP on a hat
  • SEEK some shade
  • SLIDE on some sunglasses
