Sun Smart

It's important to set the right example for your children, when it comes to sun safety.

That's the message from the HSE's National Cancer Control Programme, as part of their "Be Sun Smart" campaign.

It states if child is badly sunburned more than 3 times before the age of 20, they more than double their risk of skin cancer.


Dermatology nurse Selene Daly is urging parents to lead the way when it comes to being sun-smart.

"Remember that your children mimic what you do

"So dont sun burn your skin, don't sit out if you are burnt and practice sun smart behaviour yourself.

"It's very important that everybody is sun smart."
