sunny delights


THERE is no doubt having a tan makes you feel thinner, sexier and healthier. However, getting a painful sunburn just once every two years can triple the risk of melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer. Numbers with the disease have risen dramatically among both sexes since the 1970s , but even though more women are diagnosed with malignant melanoma, more men die from it. In fact, the death rate among men has doubled in 30 years. A third of Brits admit getting sunburnt on every holiday abroad, with one in 10 getting so badly burnt they have had to see their doctor. So to avoid your well-earned holiday being ruined by the pain of sunburn here are a few tips to ensure a sun safe holiday. Before you go out in the sun make sure you thor- oughly cleanse your skin of all traces of make-up and fragrance. This is important because these products make skin more susceptible to sunburn. Apply sunscreen thoroughly before you go out in the sun. Take great care not to leave out any areas. If you have sensitive skin, use a hypoallergenic sun care product to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction. It is advisable to stay out of the sun between noon and 3pm, as the intensity of the sun is at its peak between these hours. When swimming or playing water sports, use a waterproof SPF formula. Use a good lip screen to protect your lips from get- ting burnt or chapped. Invest in an aftersun product to cool and sooth the skin. Aloe Vera-based products are extremely

soothing. Wear a hat and t-shirt when you are enjoying the weather, playing sports or relaxing on a nice, sunny day! Sunscreen only works if you use enough. No sunscreen, whether it’s factor 15 or 50, will give the protection it claims unless you apply it properly and remember that no sunscreen gives 100% protection. When your risk of burning is high, ensure that all exposed skin is thoroughly covered in sunscreen. As a guide, for an average person, this means around two teaspoonfuls of sunscreen if you’re just covering your head, arms and neck, and around two tablespoonfuls if you’re covering your entire body, while wearing a swimming costume.

What sunscreen should I buy?


It depends on the intensity of the sun. In the UK, you are at risk if you apply sunscreen that has an SPF lower than 15. Broad spectrum sunscreens are worth investing in because they block out both UVA and UVB rays (both types of ray can lead to skin cancer). In the UK we measure UVA protection with the ‘star’ system, and sunscreens can have anywhere from 0 to 5 stars.
