Protect yourself by the following actions.

Slip on a shirt

Cover up as much skin as you can. Long sleeves, collars, long pants, loose fitting and darker colours.

Slop on sunscreen

Apply SPF30+, broad spectrum, water resistant sunscreen 20 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or after you have been swimming

Slap on a SunSmart hat

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

Seek full shade

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

Slide on sunglasses

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 the actions to decrease your risks.
