Let's stay safe in the sun

It is important to protect yourself against sunburn, and be mindful of how long you've been outside in the sun.  Too much ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or sunbeds is the main cause of skin cancer.  Even in the UK the sun can be strong enough to cause damage to your skin.  Sunburn can easily catch you out, especially if you have fair skin, lots of moles or freckles, red or fair hair or light coloured eyes, so it's important to protect yourself when the sun is strong.  This leaflet produced by Cancer Research UK (CRUK)  lists four ways to cut your skin cancer risk.
