Be SunSmart Everywhere

Although the SunSmart Campaign runs from December to January, Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) reminds all South Africans to be SunSmart throughout the year and especially during Summer.

Sunburn can occur within fifteen minutes, and the damage caused is permanent, irreversible and adds up with each exposure to the sun.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer worldwide and SA has one of the highest monitored ultra violet (UV) levels in the world, resulting in one of the highest skin cancer rates globally.

UV radiation is just as dangerous for outdoor labourers, sports people, on the playground or when driving to work, as it is when at the beach or pool. Rays can also reflect off surfaces and cause sunburn when it is overcast.

It’s getting hotter, so be SunSmarter!
