It’s time to slip, slop, slap! Actually, from September onwards, there’s five things to remember – slip, slop, slap, seek (shade) and slide (on your sunglasses).
Remember the SunSmart app? It’s been updated and now includes a new sunscreen calculator function. The calculator tells you how much sunscreen is needed for children and adults of different ages and sizes so you won’t get caught short. Perhaps applying sunscreen sounds fairly simple? Unfortunately, research shows most people don’t apply enough sunscreen which means you’re sometimes halving the level of sun protection stated on your bottle of sunscreen.
If you are planning a long time outdoors, the app has a reminder alarm so that you can reapply your sunscreen after two hours.
