New Zealand has the highest rate of melanoma in the world, and other skin cancers are also very common, and with summer nearly upon us once again, you can help reduce your risk of skin cancer by using sunscreen the right way. Using sunscreen is one of several steps you can take to be SunSmart and it provides a screen or filter from the sun's rays.
All Round Safety’s sunscreen products are Made in Australia and comply with the Australian/New Zealand Standards, so always ensure the sunscreen protects you from both UVA and UVB radiation. You should choose a sunscreen of at least SPF30+ and water-resistant. Sunscreens labelled AS/NZS2604 are recommended.
Sunscreen helps protect the skin from UVR while minimising the risk of developing skin cancer and premature ageing, and you should use sunscreen on skin not covered by clothing when you’re outside, between September and April.
You should also wear sunscreen at any time of the year when you are outside in the mountains, near snow or ice, out on the water, or near other highly shiny surfaces, including sand.
Sunscreen should be kept in a cool place, as sunscreen that has been left out in the sun or near other sources of heat may not work, and for more information check the label on your sunscreen. All Round Safety have a wide range of sunscreen products, as well as their range of other safety products.
