BE BRIGHT THIS SUMMER - BE SUNSMART
Ultraviolet radiation is what makes our skin burn and it's especially harsh in Hong Kong.
If you are outdoors between 11am and 4pm, wear plenty of sunscreen.
The bigger the number, the better the protection. Sunscreen with an SPF 30 + factor is recommended.
There's no such thing as a 'safe' tan. When your skin goes dark, the sun has damaged it.
Even on a cloudy day, UV radiation can harm your skin and make any sunburn worse.
Stay in the shade, put up an umbrella or build shade structures.
Re-apply sunscreen after swimming or sweating a lot.
Wear a wide-brimmed hat whenever you are outside.
Too much sunlight damages the eyes. Wear wrap-around sunglasses.
