Your skin performs many duties. Without skin, your muscles, bones, and organs would be hanging out all over the place. It offers protection from outside elements and infections, helps your body regulate its temperature, allows you to have the sense of touch, serves to rid your body of toxins and gives colour to your appearance. It is therefore imperative that you take good care of it.
One of the most important things you can do this summer when you are enjoying the outdoors is to protect your skin by practicing Sun Smart behaviours. Exposure to harmful ultraviolet radiation increases the risk of skin cancer so it's very important to be sun safe.
