Being SunSmart - Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap

Research has shown that too much UV radiation causes sunburn, which can lead to skin damage (including skin cancer) and eye damage. Make sun protection a life-long habit, starting as young as possible, to reduce your risk.

In New Zealand from September to April, even on cooler and/or cloudy days, UV radiation levels can be high enough to cause sunburn.  Reduce your risk by using the slip, slop, slap, and wrap steps to protect your skin and eyes.
