- Sand can increase reflected radiation by up to 17%1.
- Activities such as swimming can increase the risk of burning. Water can reflect the sun’s rays — they can increase radiation levels by up to 10%1.
- Even with overcast skies, 30-40% of UV will still penetrate through cloud cover. For example, if half of the sky is covered in clouds, 80% of UV still shines through3.
- Wet T-shirts do not work when it comes to sun protection. Make sure you wear suitable clothing to protect yourself from the sun such as hats and sunglasses2.
- If you can see through your T-shirt (i.e. loose weave material), the sun can get through and cause sunburn2.
- You need 6 teaspoons1 of sunscreen per adult to provide the protection promised, but using half of that amount could cut protection by two-thirds1.
- The SPF of many sunscreens work only if you reapply them at least once every 1 to 2 hours1.
- If you are planning a day on the beach, stay under an umbrella whenever you are not swimming and enjoy a long lunch in the shade. The sun is at its peak between 11am and 3pm.
- Around 85% of sunscreen protection is removed when you towel-dry. Make sure you reapply afterwards1.
- Do not forget the kids! Make sure your children are well covered with appropriate clothing and sun protection when out and about enjoying the sun.
- Always use a high SPF sunscreen (SPF 30+) for UVB protection1. Make sure it has a minimum of 4 stars for UVA protection too.
- Do not forget to pack Soleve Sunburn Relief as part of your holiday first aid kit. Look for Soleve in the Boots and Sainsbury's sun care aisle (next to sun protection). Alternatively, simply order online by visiting Boots.com. Always read the label.
