For instance, any use of sunbeds increases the risk of developing skin cancer, and the risk intensifies every time you use one.
This is why it’s better to not use a sunbed, and if you’ve used one in the past, to never go on one again.
To protect your skin, Macmillan have created a five-step guide to minimise your risk of skin cancer, which is:
- SLIP on a T-shirt
- SLOP on SPF 30+ sunscreen
- SLAP on a broad brimmed hat
- SLIDE on quality sunglasses
- SHADE from the sun when possible
Make sure to utilise waterproof sunscreen that has a SPF 30+ rating, with a minimum 4-star UVA rating.
