If, like us, you live in the UK, then you’re no stranger to a bit of rain, which means once the sun starts to reveal itself during the summer months we’re going for that sun-kissed tan!
Over the coming months it’s important to reach for that sunscreen and apply it (repeatedly if you plan on being out for longer than and hour!)
But how knowledgeable are you about keeping yourself safe in the sun?
Some information regarding sunscreen and Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is misunderstood or outdated and it’s important that we all understand how to protect ourselves and our loved ones against the suns rays.
The staff at Patch have written a great article explaining a little bit about the sun, how sunscreen works and how often it should be applied to give us maximum coverage and counter the risks associated with exposure to the sun. Have a look here to get the facts!
If you have any questions or worries then do not hesitate to speak to us at Body Foundation Osteopaths or seeks advice from your primary healthcare practitioner. No concern is too small!
