Protecting yourself

The best way to avoid skin cancer and sun damage is to protect skin from daylight and direct sun every day of the year. One burn doubles your risk of melanoma.

Avoid the midday sun

Protect yourself year-round; there is as much UVA in the winter as in the summer. And remember UV radiation can penetrate through light clothing, windshields, windows and clouds

Protect children from an early age, as much of the damage is done before we are 20

Protect from UV reflection off sand, water, snow and ice as 90 per cent bounces back

Give yourself a yearly examination for skin cancer and changes in moles
