5 ways to be SunSmart in the Aussie Summer


Aussie Summers are beautiful: time to spend with the family and friends, beaches, pools, laughs, kids giggling, splashing and just having the best time of our life but at the same time these beautiful moments, if we do not protect our skin properly, could be the cause of skin cancer in the future.
Do you know two in three Aussies will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime? 
I know it’s scary but protection means prevention and maximizing our chances not to develop skin cancer. We can still enjoy the hot days but we have to improve our sun protection habits, being SunSmart at all times. 

5 Ways to Protect Ourselves from Skin Cancer: 

Step 1: Slip on protective clothing
Step 2: Slop on SPF30+ sunscreen
Step 3: Slap on a broad brimmed hat
Step 4: Seek shade
Step 5: Slide on sunglasses
five ways to protect yourself from skin cancer

Cancer Council Sun Protection Products: 

Do you know the Cancer Council have a complete range of high quality hats, apparel, sunglasses and sunscreens with the necessary sun protection for the Australian way of life? 

I have always seen the Cancer Council Sunscreens in most pharmacies but I didn’t know they have a very diverse range of products to protect our skin from the sun. So, I had the opportunity to put my hands on some of their products and here are my impressions:

Kids Sunglasses 

Seriously my favorite product, they are super cute and comfy. My girls wanted to wear them immediatly and they didn’t take them of, a win! 

Adult Sunglasses 

They have a great finish, you can tell they are high quality and the best part you know you have the right sun protection coverage and my puffy mummy eyes are thankful enough.

Pretty much you can find a sunscreen for every lifestyle, the range is very diverse but I have to mention as a mum I love the Face Day Wear Moisturiser, an ultra lightweight, hydrating sunscreen that has a matte finish, I wear this one every morning and I don’t have to worry about having an oily finish or a white colour shade on my face.

Other great product is Sunscreen Sticks, it’s so easy to apply it in small areas without excess or mess.

Their unisex Panama Hats are so impressive, the smart fit is perfect, we can adapt it so easily and they have sun protection.
