HEAT WAVE ALERT
Slap on at least SPF 30 sunscreen – Apply generous amounts of water-resistant sunscreen of at least SPF30, to clean, dry skin before going out in the sun. Make sure you re-apply regularly throughout the day.
Wear a hat – Whatever the style lots of hats can help to keep the heat off your head, face, neck and ears.
Stay in the shade between 11am-3pm – The sun’s rays are strongest at this time so find a shady spot to avoid the burn.
Protect your eyes – Wearing sunglasses can help to make sure your eyes are protected from the strong rays of the sun.
Cover up – Throw on a long sleeved shirt or top that ideally has a collar and a sarong or long shorts to protect your skin.
