Wear a broad-brimmed, bucket or legionnaries hat that covers the face, head, ears and neck.


Use natural shade like trees and built shade, but don’t forget that ultraviolet radiation can be reflected from other surfaces.


Choose glasses that are a close fit with a wrap-around style. Look at the tag and make sure they meet Australian Standard 1067.


Use a combination of all five sun protection methods to decrease your risks.

Solariums use artificial UVA and UVB to tan skin. They are very concentrated (up to 5 times the midday sun) and have been shown to increase the chance of skin cancer. They should be avoided totally.
