Did you know that neglecting SPF puts our bodies in “grave danger”?


Frightening, right?

Let me share some eye-opening facts with you.

Having five or more sunburns significantly increases your risk of melanoma, the third most common skin cancer in the UK.

Astonishingly, on average, UK adults have experienced 15 sunburns in their lifetime.

Can you believe it?


But here’s the real shocker: 20% of adults admit they never use SPF.


UV rays from the sun and artificial sources are responsible for 80% of premature skin aging and 90% of melanoma skin cancers.

Even on cloudy days, those sneaky rays can still damage your skin.

That’s why daily sun protection is crucial!

Now, let’s explore why some UK adults skip SPF.


Some people think they rarely burn and just tan (21%), while others only use it when they feel like they’re burning (1 in 5).

Shockingly, 20% of people only remember to use SPF when reminded by a friend or family member. And get this, some only use it abroad (16%) or when the temperature reaches 40 degrees Celsius (10%).

But here’s the truth: Forget what they say at the sun-bed tanning shops, according to the NHS, there’s no healthy or safe way to tan. 😎


To effectively protect your skin, follow renowned dermatologist Professor Christian Aldridge’s advice:

Apply SPF 30 daily, especially from April to September.

Wear Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) clothing, especially if you have fair skin.

Monitor your skin.

Watch out for non-healing lesions or newly-pigmented areas for more than six weeks, especially in sun-exposed areas. If something seems off, seek medical attention.


The NHS also offers some helpful tips:


Stay in the shade between 11 am and 3 pm when the sun’s rays are strongest.

Apply sunscreen lotion 30 minutes before heading out and reapply just before leaving.

Remember to reapply every two hours, even if your sunscreen claims to be “water resistant.”
