An app that lets you know the daily UV levels

Do you know the daily UV level before stepping out of the House? You should.

We all know the risks of too much sun (read: cancer, premature aging and painful burns). But did you know that you need to take extra precautions when the UV level is above three as cell damage can occur in minutes? We didn’t either.

Check the daily UV with the sunsmart app and cover up in five ways says Louise Baldwin, Chair of the National Skin Cancer Committee of the Cancer Council Australia. You know the drill; Slip on a shirt, Slop on the new 50+ sunscreen, Slap on a hat, Seek shade and Slide on a killer pair of sunnies.
