KEEP CALM and BE SUNSMART

Most skin cancers are caused by overexposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun or sunbeds. Enjoy the sun safely. Whether you're at home or abroad, use shade, clothing and at least SPF15 sunscreen to protect yourself. Anyone can develop skin cancer, but some people are more likely to get the disease than others. These people tend to have one or more of the following:

  • Fair skin that burns easily in strong sun
  • Lots of moles or freckles
  • Red or fair hair
  • Light-coloured eyes
  • A personal or family history of skin cancer
  • A history of sunburn
