Reduce the risk of damaging your health by keeping a handy sized bottle of sun cream in your back pack. You’ll want an SPF rating of at least 15 and as many stars on the back of the bottle as possible. Apply generously and regularly as it can be easily rubbed, sweated and even washed off whilst swimming.
In the UK, UVA protection is measured with a star rating. Star ratings range from 0 to 5, the higher the number of stars the greater the protection. Don’t forget those awkward areas such as your lips, ears, the tops and bottoms of your feet (if you’re sunbathing on your front) and your hair line.
