Summer's on the way

We're now into May and the summer months will soon be upon us. Already there have been some really nice sunny days and hopefully many more to come! Now is a good time to remember to look after your skin when out doors. How long has that tube of sunscreen been lying around? Sunscreen has a finite life and this is usually shown on the tube but it's probably a good idea to buy a new tube anyway - it doesn't cost that much and will save you from sun burn or possibly worse. The skin of young people is more susceptible to damage so make sure that all your group members have got sun screen on when out and about on activities on those sunny days. You might find this leaflet worth a read too - http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg337.pdf And there is more information here - http://www.hse.gov.uk/temperature/issuesandrisks/sunprotection.htm
