UV damage – It all adds up

UV damage – It all adds up

“Anywhere you go UV will damage unprotected skin. And it just keeps adding up.”

This is the message from the Cancer Council in its latest Sun Smart campaign.

It’s not just regular tanners or sunbakers who are at risk of skin cancer.

Your skin is like a memory bank – it remembers all the sunburns, the tans and the time you spent exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation, without sun protection.

Every time you expose your skin to UV radiation, changes take place in the structure and function of your skin cells. You can’t always see the damage, but it is irreversible and will worsen with every exposure.

Over time, this skin damage can result in premature ageing, eye damage, sunspots, and at worst, skin cancer. Once a skin cancer has developed, the damaged cells can spread through the bloodstream to other areas of the body. http://www.sunsmart.com.au/tools/videos/current-tv-campaigns/uv-it-all-adds-up.html

Don’t take the risk, cover up with Slinky Sleeves sun sleeves in bamboo cotton and 90% cotton for maximum protection and other fabrics for high value protection. Be Armed with Style .

Sizes in S, M and L with some fabrics and size suitable for men. Plain bamboo cotton or denim look light fabric. Some have a thumb hole instead of the middle finger loop.
