Australians have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. This means that 3 out of 4 Australians will likely develop this life threatening disease before they reach the age of 70.

Research has shown by having unprotected exposure to the sun before age 20 more than doubles ones chance of having skin cancer later in life. Yet the reality is that staying out of the sun completely is not a viable option for many people, especially when activities pick up during the summer months.

There are of course options in preventing sun damage such as hats, clothing, sunglasses, and sunscreens. While hats and clothing can help in shielding against harmful sunrays, when the temperature soars, they can be unbearable. Putting on physical sunscreen is an important option as they protect against UV radiation, thus allowing the skin to repel harmful rays rather than absorbing them. Yet sunscreen alone is not 100 percent effective in preventing sun related skin damage.

That is why companies such as www.structureflex.com.au have become such an important option in shielding the sun, especially for building and shade professionals.
