A Guide to Sunscreen

As temperatures continue to soar in today’s climate, it’s easy to forget to ‘slip, slop, slap.’ With the growing trend of individuals applying sunscreen through aerosol cans, experts reveal their concern on the ‘false sense of security’ it offers. Sunscreen is an application that works in conjunction to the skin to minimise sun damage through processes of UVA and UVB ray filtration.

Aerosol cans, however, make it especially easy to ‘under apply’ as much of its users treat it the same as what they would use ‘insect repellent’ for. This has lead to a string of incidents around burn and blistering from the sun. Esther Han, from the Sydney Morning Herald, joined The Daily to discuss this further.
