Anywhere you go, UV will damage unprotected skin—and it just keeps adding up.
We tend to think of sunburn as the only way our skin gets damaged, but in reality, our skin remembers every time we’ve ever been in the sun, even if we didn’t burn or tan.
Incidental exposure during everyday activities adds up, and can cause premature ageing, eye damage, sunspots, and ultimately, skin cancer.
These activities may include outdoor chores or leisure activities, such as:
- hanging the washing
- mowing the lawn
- doing the gardening
- walking the dog
- watching the kids play sport, or
- enjoying a weekend barbeque.
