THE SUN HAS GOT HIS HAT ON, HE'S COMING OUT TO PLAY

WHEN THE SUN IS AT ITS STRONGEST - SO IS THE NEED FOR SUN PROTECTION

Sunrays are beaming down and we’re excited about going outside and enjoying the beautiful weather. Playing and learning outdoors is the highlight of the summer term – so it’s time to think about how we can stay safe while having fun in the sun. NIVEA SUN, in partnership with Cancer Research UK, are here to help and offer the following tips to help us all stay safe in the sun:

  • Spend time in the shade, especially between 11am and 3pm.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and t-shirt to protect you from strong sun.
  • Wear at least SPF15 sunscreen and re-apply regularly, particularly after swimming, sweating or changing clothes.
  • It's important to drink water in hot weather to help you stay hydrated.
  • Remember if your own shadow is shorter than you, then the sun is at its strongest and you should protect yourself.
