Our sun safety guide

This rhyme has become slightly longer since we learned it at school ... so what is the new go-to guide for sun safety this summer? Avoiding harmful UV rays in the early years of childhood significantly reduces the risks of developing skin cancer later in life. Just follow these five simple steps every day for play outdoors.

1. Slip

Slip on a tee shirt or rash shirt to cover up in the sun. Children are required to wear clothing that covers the shoulders when attending day care or preschool. Choose apparel with organic fibres that are kind on the skin.

Its's also reef safe protecting our beautiful oceans.
