Solbari blog: Your Story Series: Meet Lynda

What is your name?

Hi, my name is Lynda Fox.

Why is sun protection important to you?

I have a medical condition as well as Lupus.

What is your attitude towards sun protection today?

I have photosensitive skin and wear SunSense sunscreen ultra factor 50+ every day, I am always covered while in the sun. My life wasn't always like this though. How times have changed. Today I see how dangerous and painful the sun can be, no more sunbathing for me, or my husband or son.

What would you tell your 16 year old self about sun protection?

My holidays consisted of getting the best suntan that I could, it was a must! If I could turn the clock back I wouldn't be racing for that sun bed, I would be happy to be able to walk around with a t-shirt and shorts on, be happy to swim outdoors, which of course that was all taken for granted.

    Thanks Lynda, for sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

    What does UPF 50+ mean?

    UPF 50+ is the maximum sun protective rating achievable for fabrics.

    UPF stands for ultraviolet protection factor and is the sun protective rating measure for fabrics.

    UPF50+ means that only up to 1/50th or 2% of ultraviolet radiation is able to penetrate the fabric which has been tested.

    A fabric which has been awarded a UPF 50+ rating by the Australian Government is considered to provide excellent protection.
