We all tend to spend more time outdoors during the Summer, basking in the warmth and sunlight however, we also know that the sun can have a damaging impact on our skin and eyes. Even when it’s cloudy outside it’s important to protect our skin and eyes as UV rays can still get through the clouds.
Protect your skin from the harsh sunlight by using a sun protection with at least SPF30 and UVA 4 Stars or more.
If proper precautions are not taken, the sun can have damaging effects on our wellbeing.
Premature ageing, wrinkles, and discoloration of the skin are just some of the side effects of prolonged exposure, whilst more serious issues such as the development of cancerous moles are also a risk.
If you notice any changes to your skin or have any concerns, it is best to have your skin checked out.
Our range of Dermatology Services cater for such issues and many others including:

For your eyes, wear protective eyewear which will block at least 99% of ultraviolet rays.
Alongside wearing your sunglasses, minimize your risk and add a hat with a brim at least 3 inches wide. Consistent use of hats and sunglasses significantly decrease your UVR exposure.
