It’s June and the forecast is for a mini heatwave over the weekend. Well, in the mid 20’s, which is a heatwave for the UK.
Cue the usual headlines about the dangers of the sun and sun bathing. Not forgetting global warming and pollution.
We all played outside in the sunshine as children, without any ill effects. And, if you Mother was anything like ours, she believed in fresh air and sunshine all year round. Not just in the summer.
So when did spending time outside in the sunshine become so dangerous?
And is slathering yourself in sun tan lotion really the answer?
