Ultraviolet radiation (UV)

Individual protection against UV

What should I take into account when I go travelling?

UV radiation levels vary substantially with time and place. The increased risk of UV damage to the skin and eye during a holiday in a sunny location is often underestimated. Beyond the discomfort of sunburn, tourists are also at particular risk of long-term health effects on the eye and skin, especially skin ageing and skin cancer.
