Australia’s heatwave: UPF 50+ sun protective clothing can help reduce the “reliance" on sunscreen

Australia is experiencing some unusually hot weather. At the time of writing, this January is on track to be the hottest on record. It was reported by the Sydney Morning Herald at one point during this month the hottest 15 places in the world were all located in Australia. Temperatures in South Australia reached 49 degrees celsius.

As a result of the hot weather and the associated public health risks, there has been recent news commentary in Australia about the use of sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or more needing to become a daily routine, rather than just something we do when we go the beach. Applying sunscreen should be like brushing our teeth. It is noted that the rate of skin cancer in Australia is not showing any signs of slowing down which has led many experts to conclude that sun safety behaviours have not improved. We welcome the fact that the mainstream media in Australia is spreading the message that sun safety is a daily requirement.

Dermatologists have long been of the view that the best way to protect yourself from the risk of sun burn, skin ageing, skin cancer and melanoma is to wear UPF 50+ sun protective clothing. With Solbari UPF 50+ broad brim sun hats and sun protective clothing, it is possible to cover up, be UV protected and stay cool at the same time. Exposing the skin to the direct sunlight not only increases the risk of sun burn and skin damage but contrary to popular belief it is also a lot harder to stay cool and reduce perspiration.

Sunscreen is a great way to protect yourself if you have no choice but to expose your skin to the direct sunlight, but there is a better alternative to sunscreen which is UPF 50+ sun protective clothing. Once you try it, we think you will agree.

Solbari offers a range of products which includes of UPF50+ sun protective clothing, UV 50+ arm sleeves, sun protective driving gloves and sun umbrellas.
