From avoiding a cricked back and swarms of insects to gloves that help conquer arthritis... we reveal the guide to being a healthy gardener

by Caroline Jones for The Daily Mail, 9 April 2019

Research has linked being green-fingered to everything from higher vitamin D levels to lower blood pressure. And last month, a study in the journal Neurology listed gardening as one of a handful of activities that could lower the risk of dementia in old age. This is thought to be down to the combination of physical and mental stimulation it provides.

But being out in the garden makes us vulnerable to a host of health hazards, from back injuries to skin problems. Here doctors review a selection of products that could help protect gardeners — we then rated them.

Claim: This cotton hat promises to block 98 per cent of harmful rays, which the maker says is equivalent to wearing SPF50. Can be worn as a cap, or as a visor by unzipping the top section.

Expert Verdict: 'The ears, hairline and neck are all hot spots for the two most common types of skin cancer — squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma — yet many people forget to protect these areas when gardening,' says Dr Alexandroff. 'But even 30 minutes of unprotected exposure to sunlight increases your risk. It's vital that gardeners protect their heads from the sun's harmful rays and this hat is a decent choice, giving good coverage with a wide brim that covers much of the face.

Can skin damage caused by the sun be repaired or even reversed?
Can skin damage caused by the sun be repaired or even reversed?

Your skin is your largest organ and has a long memory. Sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) damage is cumulative throughout your life. Research shows that sun damage contributes to more than 90% of wrinkles, brown spots, premature skin aging as well as precancerous and cancerous skin lesions.

Limiting sun exposure is very important. As the UV rays cause the most damage to the skin.

It often takes many years and sometimes decades for the effects to become visible.

But the good news is that taking care of your skin from now onwards may be able to help you to reduce the probability of skin cancers and minimise skin aging.

Your Story Series: Meet Andrew

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.
