Melanoma Action and Support Scotland
Between April and September we get lots of days with a cold wind or breeze and a clear or lightly clouded sky. This can lead to “unexpected” sun burn. Be aware that precautions are needed every day when you are to be outside between 11am and 3pm. Our weather changes rapidly and we need to be ready with sun protection as rain protection. Be prepared. Do not depend upon the SPF in moisturisers or make-up as the application will be too thin and the SPF too low.
