Have you got protection??

Protecting your skin again harmful UV rays and free radicals is not only a beauty-must, it could save your life! Living in ?a sunburnt country? our skins are exposed to lots of sun most of the year, giving us one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Not pretty. Be sensible with your sun exposure this summer. Avoid direct sun from 12 ? 3pm. Wear a hat, there are plenty of super funky options out there for head wear this season. And don?t forget your sunscreen. New generation formulas mean greasy, ghost faces are a thing of the past. And don?t forget your hair, use a leave in treatment with SPF too to protect your tresses from sun stress this summer.??
