Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a simple and effective way to reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Skin cancer occurs when skin cells are damaged, for example, by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. Unlike the sun's heat and light, we can't see or feel UV radiation. UV radiation can be high even on cool and overcast days. This means you can't rely on clear skies or high temperatures to determine when you need to protect yourself from the sun.

Applying sunscreen

Many Australians apply too little sunscreen and forget to reapply.

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the invisible killer that you can't see or feel. It is strong enough to cause sunburn in as little as 11 minutes on a fine summer day.

UV radiation can be high even on cool and overcast days. This means you can't rely on clear skies or high temperatures to determine when you need to protect yourself from the sun.

A cool or overcast day in summer can have similar UV levels to a warm, sunny day. Sun damage is also possible on cloudy days, as UV radiation can penetrate some clouds, and may even be more intense due to reflection off the clouds.

Which sunscreen should I use?

Choose a sunscreen that best suits your skin type, activity and that you find easy to reapply. If you have sensitive skin and have had a reaction to sunscreen in the past, look for fragrance-free products. If you don’t want sunscreen residue left on your hands, look for a gel.

Not all sunscreens contain the same ingredients. If your skin reacts to one sunscreen, talk to a chemist or doctor about choosing one with different ingredients.

Make sure the sunscreen is broad-spectrum and at least 30SPF.
