NIVEA SUN and Cancer Research UK have worked in partnership since 2012 to make the UK public more sun safe. Together we’re encouraging families to protect themselves in the sun, whether at home or abroad. We communicate the importance of effective sunscreen use, shade and clothing for sun protection.

NIVEA SUN is proud to be sponsoring this year’s Cancer Research UK Race for Life Schools campaign to help children stay safe in the sun.

Thousands of schools are holding their very own Race for Life event in aid of Cancer Research UK, and we’ll be sharing educational material to encourage sun safety on race day and throughout the summer.

Taking Care

Take C.A.R.E. when the sun is strong

Sun precautions aren't reserved for holidays; it’s important to think about sun safety and skin protection whenever the sun is strong, whether you're in the school playground, on the golf course or on the beach.

COVER UP

WEAR A T-SHIRT, HAT AND SUNGLASSES

Wide-brimmed hats or foreign legion-style caps are best. A wide-brimmed hat and long-sleeved top or maxi dress will not only help
protect your skin, but you'll also be the height of summer style!

AIM FOR THE SHADE

BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 11AM – 3PM IN THE UK

Spend time in the shade if your shadow is shorter than you. During the UK summer, the sun is at its strongest between 11am and 3pm, but you can still enjoy a sunny day at the park protected by a tree shade.

RUB ON SUNSCREEN

USE PLENTY WITH AT LEAST SPF15 AND 4-STAR+

Sunscreen rubs off easily if you sweat, swim or change clothes. So whether you're in the UK or abroad, remember to apply generously
and reapply regularly.

ENJOY

HAVE FUN IN THE SUN SAFELY

So cover up and apply sunscreen, and ensure you avoid the sun during the hottest times of the day; then you can enjoy the sun even
more knowing that you're keeping yourself safe from short- and long-term sun damage.
