Cover up with a hat, t-shirt 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!
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
Use sunscreen with a factor of at least 15 and a high star rating. 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.
