Don't miss these 7 areas when protecting your skin

Don't miss these 7 areas when protecting your skin

Below are 7 areas which people often forget to protect from the sun and can cause serious sunburn and skin damage.

1. Ears: Have you ever had blistering, peeling ears? Well, it's pretty painful and not a good look. Don't forget to apply sunscreen on your ears, the upper area and behind them. 

2. Eyelids: It's a very delicate area, where the skin is sensitive and thin. Category 3 sunglasses will help protect the eyes as well as a wide brim sun hat.

3. Hair line and hair part: The top of the head is an area where the sun's rays hit hard. 

4. Back of neck: Getting a sunburn in that area can be prevented by wearing a collared shirt, applying sunscreen and a wide brim hat or a hat with a flap at the back.

Wide brim sun hats and legionnaire style sun hats provide good coverage and protection against the sun's UV rays. They will keep your face, ears, hair part and hair line protected. Favour a wide brim sun hat to a cap as it will provide you with more sun protection. 

5. On top of the feet: If you're swimming or walking in the water along the beach, remember to reapply sunscreen when out of the water.

6. Under straps: Straps, clothing and swimsuits move throughout the day. Take special care and apply sunscreen not only to the areas around your clothing and swimsuits, but directly underneath them too. Favour clothing that covers large areas of the skin to minimise this problem.

7. Back of the arms, legs and under arms: Wear sun protective clothing that block UVA and UVB rays and covers those areas otherwise, remember to apply and reapply sunscreen regularly.

I'm big advocate for sun safety, so I'm very proactive with looking after my skin. I'm always pushing my friends and family to be more sun safe, I think most know the effects of the sun, but not to the extent they should. Most don't seem to understand the UV index, and how quickly you can get burnt in the middle of the day. There's still a long way to go for sun safety education!

As a teenager growing up in England my favourite summer pastime was sunbathing with friends. I have been extremely lucky to have not developed skin cancers (to date) and I am willing to start to take better care.

It's all about awareness really, and people are aware, they just need to take it seriously and notice it more. Knowing the consequences and being mindful of how easy it is to avoid, life in general, being out and about, is much easier, happier and less painful.
