Sun damage is a serious health threat, and should be avoided as best you can. Simple measures like avoiding intensive midday sun and regularly applying sunscreen can help reduce prematurely ageing skin and the risk of skin cancer. Even sunscreen with the highest possible protection factors cannot provide 100% protection from UV rays, so in the sun, things like wearing a hat and sitting in the shade will help to avoid burning. When choosing your sunscreen, always choose a quality cream, ensuring ultimate protection. At LloydsPharmacy we only stock and recommend sunscreens that are SPF15 or above.
