CANSA UV-Smart Armbands Help You to Stay Safe in the Sun

CANSA UV-Smart Armbands Help You to Stay Safe in the Sun

As part of our SunSmart Campaign, CANSA is giving South Africans a practical way to implement its message: “Safe in the sun”. You can now monitor the harmful UV-rays you are exposed to with a CANSA UV-Smart Armband that turns darker in colour as the UV-rays intensify. Each shade of colour gives protection recommendations you can follow in order to avoid sunburn.

The UV-Smart Armbands sell for R30 each and are available in blue, pink and purple, adult and small sizes. Buy your UV-Smart Armband directly from CANSA’s Care Centres country-wide or call CANSA toll-free on 0800 22 66 22.

In 2009, Bailey was diagnosed with superficial spreading Melanoma at the age of 26 years old. Luckily through early detection, it was cut out before it spread further. Bailey gets regular check-ups by her dermatologist every six months to ensure she is still healthy and Melanoma-free. Follow her on Twitter: @baileyschneider and read her daily blog on
