The sun, 109 times bigger than the Earth, provides the energy and light necessary for life on Earth: via photosynthesis for plants, and vitamin D for us humans.

The sun reaches us through the sun's rays, especially UV rays, which make up more than half of the solar spectrum. These rays are the ones that come into contact with our skin, whether for better (healthy complexion, Vitamin D top up) or worse (sunburn, skin ageing, allergies, increased risk of skin cancer, acne worsening, and more).

It’s important to know the rules of sun exposure and good practices to adopt from a young age in order to ensure sun safety. Sun protection, clothing and a high factor sunscreen, is the best way to protect your precious ability to resist sun damage. Remember, you only have one chance!
