The sun is a fierce beast in New Zealand. In recent studies, we are the most at-risk in the world for damaging our skin due to the harsh sun all year round.
Melanoma cancer sits on the pigment of the skin and worsens if not treated, so it is important to take the right precautions to save yourself in the long run. The NZ Sunscreen Company offer a wide range of sunscreens and after-burn serums to shield skin from UV. You can visit their website on: nzsunco.com to look at their selection. If you want to go for a cheaper option, you can visit your local supermarket and pick one up from there, but make sure to get a bottle that has SPF 30, as that blocks approximately 97 percent of the sun.
