Slap on the sun scream

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

It never ceases to amaze me the amount of peo­ple who get them­selves and their chil­dren sun­burned.

We’ve had some of the hottest days in history this week, yet I still found my­self in­ter­ven­ing and giv­ing a mum my sun cream so she could put it on her child whose arms were lob­ster red.

I mean, you wouldn’t let your kid play in a snow storm without a coat.

When will we learn we have to pro­tect our skin from the harm­ful rays of the sun?

Around 7,230 peo­ple will die of skin cancer this year. But de­spite this scary fact, I still see kids run­ning around with bare skin, and grown adults show­ing off blis­ter­ing red T-shirt lines.

So do your­self and your chil­dren a favour – if the sun has got his hat on, get yours on too.
