Despite all the sun safety messages, half of Brits have got sunburnt this summer and many of them claim to be willing to do it again in order to get a tan, according to the results of a survey from Cancer Research UK and Superdrug.
The survey found that the most common place for sunburn during 2010 was on the face (40%), followed by the arms (39%), shoulders (37%) and neck (36%).
With sunburn being a major sign that the skin has been harmed, and it being known to increase the risk of skin cancer, getting sunburnt is a bit daft. So many sun protection products are on the market and it doesn’t take long to apply them to your skin.
