TIPS FOR STAYING PROTECTED.
The sun's UV rays are strongest from 10am—3pm. Aim to find shade during these hours. If you can’t stay in the shade, make sure your skin is protected in other ways.
Wear clothes that cover your skin as much as possible.
Hats need to provide protection for your face, back of the neck, eyes and ears.
Long-term exposure to UV radiation can cause cataracts and skin cancers of the eye. Always wear sunglasses that meet the Australian Standard.
SPF30+ sunscreen filters out 97 per cent of UV radiation.
