Holidaymakers in pursuit of the sun have been warned to protect their body from potential skin damage by Cancer Research UK.A study of 400 people by the charity found that 90 per cent of the holidaymakers who were sure they would get burned this summer knew of the harmful risks that too much sun could cause to the skin.Most people are aware that taking in too much sun without wearing suitable protection may cause skin cancer, but it can also lead to wrinkles and faster skin ageing.Those that are intending on catching a good tan are advised by the charity to avoid spending too long in the heat in the middle of the day when the sun is at its hottest and to use a high factor sun cream to protect the skin.Travellers taking a break to a summer location should make sure they take out travel insurance in case they require any medical help because of an over-indulgence in the sun.The British Association of Dermatologists have said that the UK has the highest rates out of anyone in Europe for skin cancer in people under 19.
