DON'T BE A ROCK LOBSTER - BE SUN-SAVVY!
SunSmart is urging everyone to think about sun protection before checking out the action at the St Kilda festival this weekend.
Even though it might be cloudy this weekend the UV radiation is extreme at this time of year and it takes only 11 minutes in the sun to get burnt.
SunSmart Manager, Sue Heward, says: "Remember to bring sunscreen and reapply regularly throughout the day. Hats are hot this season so get on board and throw on some sunnies to protect your eyes."
If you have an iPhone you can download the free SunSmart app - it tells you the times of the day when you need sun protection so you'll know exactly when to slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a hat, seek shade and slide on some sunglasses.
Young Australians have the highest incidence of malignant melanoma in the world compared with adolescents in other countries. In young people aged 12-24 years, melanoma is the most common cancer, with more than double the number of cases of any other kind of cancer.
Protecting yourself from UV rays isn't difficult, so get on your skin's good side and slip, slop, slap, seek and slide!
