As the weather warms up, remember to be Sun Aware.
Some sunshine helps the body create vitamin D and give us a feeling of general wellbeing but if we over-do our sun exposure this can cause permanent damage to our skin and is the main cause of skin cancer.
Use precautions when going out in the sun:
Slip on a top
Slop on some sun lotion
Slap on a hat
Seek out some shade
Slide on the sunglasses.
Remember we have models, posters and teaching packs for you to borrow and use for your teaching to staff and service users.
