Survey finds Brits are still
dying for a tan

During the 2016 tour over half of the people we spoke to are risking their lives for a ‘perfect’ tan.

  • More than 10% of those surveyed are serial tanners and 75% admit to tanning on holiday and special occasions
  • 80% of children have been burnt by the sun
  • 66% will only apply sunscreen on holiday
  • 1 in 3 parents use SPF 50/50+ on their children, but most use SPF 15 or less on themselves

The advice from SunSense is to combine a sunscreen that offers SPF 50/50+ broad-spectrum protection with sun-protective clothing, a hat that protects the face, head, neck and ears, shade and sunglasses.

We would like to thank everyone who joined us and hope that we’ve encouraged new healthier attitudes and sense of awareness towards sun protection.
