Glendale Golf is Sun Protection Accredited to the Slip! Slap! Swing! campaign, having pledged to raise awareness of sun protection and skin cancer, protecting the health of our staff, members and visitors.
Skin cancer mainly affects those who spend lots of time outdoors without sun protection, so it makes sense for us all to take the risks seriously. Over the last 30 years, incidence of melanoma has more than doubled in women and tripled in men, so we aim to address this.
The sun can damage your skin between March and October, specifically when the UV Index is 3 and over. Bear in mind that you can burn, even on cloudy days, and the weather can be changeable, so always start the day whether working or playing, ‘sun prepared’:
- Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF30+) on exposed skin, sunglasses and a brimmed hat.
- Apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before UV exposure to ensure it is rubbed in and active.
- Drink water regularly help keep you alert and to avoid dehydration.
- Reapply sunscreen every two hours on sunny days or more often if sweating.
- A sunscreen applicator, chubby stick or keeping a small towel handy, will help you avoid a greasy grip.
- Pay special attention to lips, nose, ears and back of neck as these areas are prone to burning.
- Select shade if and when possible, especially on hot days.
- Remember that sunscreen can easily be rubbed off when carrying or brushing against items.
- Check skin every month or so and if you spot any changes, visit your GP immediately.
