Women heed sun warn­ings

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

AUS­TRALIAN women are al­most twice as likely as men to pro­tect them­selves against skin cancer by wear­ing sun­screen ev­ery day. A con­sumer sur­vey found that while 27 per cent of fe­males wore sun­screen ev­ery day, only 15 per cent of males did. This is the first sun­screen study by con­sumer rat­ings agency Canstar Blue. The sur­vey also showed Aus­tralians still had a long way to go when it came to pro­tect­ing their skin from the sun. Of the re­spon­dents who liked to tan, a quar­ter still pre­ferred to do so through sun­bak­ing with­out sun­screen pro­tec­tion.
