Having a suntan is often seen as desirable, whether it is considered a fashion statement or even a marker of good health. Having that ‘healthy glow’ that people compliment when you return from a sun-filled abroad has long been viewed as the perfect accessory, and some people will go to great lengths to get it. During our 2016 ‘Dying for a Tan’ tour, we spoke to people to see what their attitudes to sun tanning were, and even met people who were willing to risk sun damage to get a little colour in their cheeks.

These statistics suggest that many people still have a relaxed view of protecting their skin from the potentially damaging effects of the sun. Here at SunSense, we advise that the best way to protect yourself is combine a sunscreen with SPF 50/50+ broad spectrum protection with sun-protective clothing. This should include a hat that protects the face, head, neck and ears, and a pair of sunglasses. You should also try to stay in the shade as much as possible.
We would like to thank everyone who joined us for our 2016 ‘Dying for a Tan’ tour. Hopefully, we have encouraged new, healthier attitudes towards sun tanning and increased awareness of the necessity for effective sun protection.
