This May Be The Sunburnt Country, But Are Australians Sun Safe?

Australians could be unknowingly increasing their risk of developing skin cancer. That’s the message coming out from the Cancer Council this week, with a recent report revealing that more than 9 out of 10 Australians don’t know when they should be using sun protection. The report also found that 40 percent of Australians are still confused about which weather factors can cause sunburn.

Sun safety isn’t exactly a new thing in Australia, so why are so many Australians at a loss when it comes to knowing when to cover up?
