General Sun Protection Information:
Shade is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself from the sun. Using shade can reduce your UV exposure by up to 75%!
UV radiation cannot be felt or seen, so it’s possible for the sun to damage your skin even on cool or overcast days. Download our UV resources to plan when to schedule outdoor activities. In NSW, UV levels are high enough (i.e. UV index 3 or above) to damage unprotected skin most months of the year.
When the UV Index is 3 or above, most people maintain adequate Vitamin D levels just by spending a few minutes outdoors on most days of the week.
How much Vitamin D do we need?
