Working in partnership
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.
Take C.A.R.E. when the sun is strong
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.
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.
