Why We Need To Use Sunscreen And Not Just When It’s Sunny.

I’m writing this as the UK is having a heat wave. (Sorry, rest of the world. We’re not use to it being really hot!). Even now, some of us don’t use sunscreen or not enough of it. Here is a reminder why you should.

  1. I only discovered a few years ago about the 2 hour factor – that was a big shock, so thank you for the reminder!

  2. I’d recently just bought my first ever bottle of sunblock. I’d never bothered with it before because I don’t sun bath and try to avoid going out when it’s hot. But sometimes it’s unavoidable

  3. This is such an important reminder. I know so many people that don’t wear sunscreen and I nag at them all the time to do it haha. I’m so fascinated by the SPF 30 vs 50 fact. I always try and get a super high SPF but never really looked into how effective it was just assumed it was better. Thanks for sharing all of this info!

  4. Thank you, Rachel. Melanoma, Squamous Cell, and Sebaceous Carcinoma here… Blistering sunburns as a child… when people referred to having a “healthy tan” and sunscreen was not even talked about. Listen to Rachel, folks. Protect yourself from the sun’s rays and get your Vitamin D checked.
