SUN ADVICE

From April to September, when the UV index exceeds 3, it’s a good idea to follow the 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 and a t-shirt.

 

 

USE ENOUGH SUNSCREEN
Always remember to apply enough sunscreen to achieve the protection stated on the product. An adult should use appr. 30-40ml for a full body coverage and about 20ml for a child. On average, a 150ml can contains 4 applications and a 200ml bottle contains 5-6 applications (for adult body coverage), 100ml bottle contains 3-4 applications (for adult body coverage). If you apply less sunscreen, the sun protection factor and protection will decrease significantly.

 

 

KEEP CHILDREN OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT
Never expose babies and young children to direct sunlight. Children should have extra protection against the ultraviolet rays, that’s why we have introduced a new Sun Cream specially designed for children. Use sunscreens with high sun protection factors, light clothes and a sunhat. Good sun habits as a child can reduce the risk of sunburnt skin, skin damage and skin cancer.
