Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world, with cases on the rise in the UK. Over-exposure to UV radiation can be a serious health risk for those who work outdoors or on the move, so make sure you’re taking the right measures to stay protected.

The 5S approach to sun safety

If you work outdoors, Swarfega advises that you protect against UV exposure by following these five simple steps:

  1. SLIP on sun protection clothing – clothing can be one of the most effective barriers
  2. SLOP on some sun cream – practical for exposed parts of the body.  Apply a broad spectrum, high SPF sun cream 20 minutes before initial exposure and re-apply every 2 hours or more frequently if sweating heavily.  Water resistant creams like the TOUGH by Swarfega cream are ideal
  3. SLAP on a hat and neck protection
  4. SLIDE on some sunglasses – high quality wrap-around sunglasses are ideal
  5. SHADE from the sun when possible – take breaks or work in a shaded area wherever possible.
