"Prevention is better than cure." With that in mind, you will find sunscreen poles from Zilveren Kruis at the entrances of the HZ locations on Edisonweg and in Het Groene Woud. You can use it if you have sensitive skin, as the cream is hypoallergenic and paraben-free."

Protect your skin against UV-A and UV-B radiation
When we think about our health, we often forget about the health of our skin. Not only in the bright sun, but also in the shade, your skin can be damaged. Often, between April and October, we apply sunscreen against uv-B radiation to avoid burning. But did you know that uv-A radiation is present and harmful all year round? Even when it is cloudy, it is important to protect your skin.

Sunscreen advice
The advice is to re-apply sunscreen every 2 hours. You can use the free sunscreen poles at the HZ for this purpose. Avoid full sun from sun strength 5 onwards between 12:00 - 15:00. Try not to spend more than 3 hours a day in the sun on average. Even if you have applied sunscreen.
