Meet Mr Sun

From busting British sun myths to keeping us sun safe, Mr Sun is here to help


Who is Mr Sun?

Despite being a ball of exploding gas, Mr Sun means no harm. But he is surprised and confused to see that not everyone in the UK protects their skin when they need to.

But when he meets people who are being sun smart, his mood is lifted. By helping to bust sun myths, Mr Sun wants to keep us safe when we’re having fun in the sun.
