Sun safety is just as essential in Ireland as when you are abroad. The sun emits damaging UV rays year-round, even on cloudy days. As up to 80% of the sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate the skin, it’s important that your skin is always protected from the sun’s UVA/UVB rays.


Dermatologists recommend using sunscreen every day, even in cloudy Irish weather, yet 17% of school children** and 28% of adults*** do not use sun cream in Ireland.


Let NIVEA SUN, Ireland’s No.1 sun care brand*, look after you at home with these top picks for essential sun protection for the whole family:
