5 Summer SunSmart Must Do's

As summer rolls around and the days get warmer and sunnier, it is time to start thinking about sun protection and protecting your skin from the damaging UV rays. As the sun is getting more intense, the more important it is to take precautions as you will never regret looking after yourself and your family.

Here at Cat&i, we love to enjoy the sun and being outdoors so we have complied a list of sunsmart must dos for this summer to help keep you and your family safe.

Avoid midday sun

The sun is at its strongest in the middle of the day (well, approx. 10am – 4pm) and this is the time you can be more susceptible to sun damage. Ways to keep yourself safe during these times are to use UV protective clothing and of course sunscreen if you are out and about.

 Wear a hat

Wearing a hat is one of the easiest ways to keep the sun off your face, ears and neck. A large brim (4 inch+) is a really good way to provide shade.

 Wear UV protective clothing

A UPF 50+ rashie is a fabulous idea to put on when you are out in the sun and need extra protection. The humble t-shirt can only provide protection of between UPF 5 – 7, so your best bet is to get a purpose manufactured UPF 50+ rashie which can help filter out 98% of the UVA and UVB rays. 


Use a broad spectrum high SPF sunscreen (30 or 50+) and this can help block out both UVA and UVB rays. Remember to apply 20 or 30 minutes before going outdoor and reapply every 2 hours.


Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes as eyes can also get sun damaged from the UV rays. Look for sunglasses that block out UVA and UVB.
