We all enjoy the sun, it makes us feel better and has some health benefits, it is just very important that we learn to enjoy the sun safely and to take the appropriate precautions to prevent skin damage. This can be anything from premature ageing of the skin up to skin cancer. Just one case of serious sun burn in childhood or adolescence can more than double a persons risk of getting malignant melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer. So the message really is to be aware, be sun safe and to never burn!
