Sydney UV peaks in January

Now’s the time to get slopping!  January is the peak month for UV damage in Sydney.  More than ever it’s a good time to revise your sun safe habits.

Avoid the sun in the middle 5 hours of the day

Wear protective clothing outdoors.  Broad brim hat, long sleeves, long pants, turned up collar, wraparound Elvis sunglasses

Sunscreen SPF 50+ and reapply generously every 2 hours when in sun

Happy summer!
