Okay, so it might be a little late for most of us to start training for the Olympics, but I like to believe that there are many more good times ahead of us than behind us.  And we are all still young enough to do a cracking good job at work each day.

Unfortunately, there’s still this idea out there that ‘it’s too late for me to protect my skin, the damage is already done. The good news is, even if you’ve spent your entire life working outside without sun protection, it’s never too late to start reducing your risk of skin cancer.

Skin damage builds up over time, so taking simple steps now will prevent further damage, and that can only be a good thing.

Lucky for you, looking after your skin is as simple as slipping on a shirt, wearing sunscreen, a hat and sunnies, and using shade (or for those in the know, Slip Slop Slap Seek Slide).

So before you start thinking ‘what’s the point?’, remember that no matter your age or how long you’ve worked outdoors in the sun, NOW is the time to protect your skin.
