A cool tool for staying sun-safe this summer, and a practical Christmas gift idea too: UV-Smart Armbands, available from Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) Care Centres countrywide.

These turn darker as radiation intensifies, and each shade gives protection recommendations to follow to avoid sun damage.

The UV-Smart Armbands sell for R30 each and are available in blue, pink and purple, adult and small sizes. Buy your UV-Smart Armband directly from CANSA’s Care Centres country-wide or call CANSA toll-free on 0800 22 66 22.
