In brief: Be careful

Once the burn has healed.
Never go out without suncscreen, a hat and sunglasses. Remember suncscreen needs to be reapplied every one to 2 hours. There is also sunprotective clothing-some of the companies are coolibar, solumbra and sunday afternnoons, and tilley hats. When you buy a hat make sure it is lightweight or you will not wear it.
