Working for SunSense has really opened my eyes to the dangers of UV rays and I have been applying sunscreen to both myself and my children everyday for sometime now. It was easy to incorporate into our daily routine – we just do it out of habit after we brush our teeth in the morning and top up throughout the day. I know some people don’t think it’s necessary in the UK, but when you talk to the experts and work with skin cancer patients on a daily basis, it’s hard to ignore just how important it is. I would encourage others to make their pledge today to protect themselves and their families.
I made a pledge to wear sunscreen every day two summers ago when I noticed a direct link between the heat of the sun and my rosacea. Since making this pledge and sticking to it, I have seen a dramatic reduction in flare ups.
We Brits have a tendency to think that the sun only affects us when we are on holiday or when we are outside all day in the height of summer. I have seen huge benefits from regarding the sun as out and on the attack from the moment it rises to when it falls, even in the winter! The sun may only burn us in the summer but it is affecting our skin all year round. I am glad that I made this pledge and I hope that you will be too. Cleanse, tone, moisturise, SPF. Easy.
I wear sunscreen myself every day, so the next best thing I can do is to encourage every one I meet, to think about the health of their skin and use sunscreen. As someone who works in melanoma, this message is vital. Thank you SunSense.
