Are you exposed to the sun on a daily basis at work ? Are you a gardener, construction worker, sailing instructor or urban cleaner? Then you are particularly exposed to the risk, especially if you're prone to sunburn.
Some tips to protect yourself :
- wear clothing that provides a shield, fairly dark in colour and in a closely woven material (a denim shirt provides 200 times more protection than a white cotton T-shirt); don't forget sunglasses and a cap or hat.
- use a protective sunscreen SPF 30 and reapply every two hours, ideally
- don't stay out in the sun unnecessarily; take your breaks in the shade
- see a dermatologist once a year if you have a lot of moles, and immediately if one of them changes in appearance.
