Do Sun Screens and Lotions Protect us?
With summer around the corner (hard to believe I know, but in a fortnight’s time it will be June), I came across a couple of articles on the BBC News website and I thought it would be useful.
We all know about the harmful effects of UVB from the sun, and no doubt we rely on the blurb on the bottle of suntan cream or lotions of our choice to tell us. Sadly, not everyone knows what all the jargon means but the BBC have provided a handy jargon-buster for us.
Yet, even when we understand the jargon, can we trust what it says? Not according to Which?
Important as the sun might be to our good health, personally I try to follow the mantra my old mum use to frequently tell me: a little bit of everything does you good.
