Avoiding Sun Exposure can help Save Your Skin

Avoiding Sun Exposure can help Save Your Skin

It’s no secret that the sun’s rays can severely affect your skin, but did you know just how bad excessive sun exposure can be?








Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their lifetime, and at Ashbury Cosmetic Surgery in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast we think this is a shocking statistic! That means two thirds of the Australian population will at some stage suffer from skin cancer in their life. If you are lying out in the sun with no protection from UV rays, you are heightening your risk of developing skin cancer. Not only that, but what you believe to be beautiful tanned skin now will leave your skin sagging, leathery and damaged later in life.

The seriousness of skin damage…

The sun’s rays are most damaging between 11am and 2pm, so it is important to stay out of the sun during this time. If you must go out in the sun over lunchtime, it is important to wear sunscreen (SPF30+ is recommended), a hat, sunglasses and a long sleeved t-shirt. This will help protect your skin from harmful sun rays that take just 15 minutes to start burning your skin!

While we are aware that summer has just ended, it is important to note that the onset of cooler months does not mean being in the sun is less dangerous. Even if the weather is overcast, you will still get burned!
