Expatriates returning to their home countries where the sun is not as hot as they are used to should be aware that using sun protection is still important, according to the British Skin Foundation.
Bevis Man, spokesperson for the organisation, said the sun in the UK is strong enough to burn people’s skin in the summer months, which could cause long-term damage and increase the risk of having to make a claim on expatriate medical insurance for hospital treatment.
‘It’s better to be safe than sorry and follow the simple rules of applying sunscreen, covering up, and wearing a hat when you’re out in the sun,’ he maintained.
Mr Man’s comments follow a survey by TV show MyFaceMyBody, which found that people living in the UK are 30 per cent less likely to be aware of the risk of skin cancer than those living in the southern hemisphere.
The survey also revealed that many labour under the impression that they are less likely to get sunburnt if they are in water.
Mr Man suggested that consumers can still purchase water resistant suncream, but should be aware that it will come off with sweat, everyday contact and general movement.
