Stay safe in the sun

We work with the North East and Cumbria Learning Disability Network to share easy-to-understand information to help people look after their health and wellbeing.

Staying safe in the sun is very important, especially when it's hot. To reduce your risk of skin cancer, don’t forget to:

  • Use sunscreen with at least Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 30

  • Drink plenty of water when it’s hot

  • Cover up with a hat and long sleeves

  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face and neck

  • Wear UV blocking sunglasses to protect your eyes

  • Apply sun cream to those easy to miss places - lips, tops of ears, back of neck, feet and scalp.

  • Limit your time in the sun and stay in the shade between 11am and 3pm.

  • Not let your skin go red or burn.

  • Not use a sunbed or sunlamp.
