Summer On the beach, sitting outside a pub or café, or in the back garden: the sun is always welcome! However the sun can also be dangerous. Too much exposure to the sun’s rays increases the risk of skin cancer. It is therefore sensible, especially when the sun is strong, to make sure your skin is protected and move into the shade from time to time. Winter In Western Europe in winter the sun is weak. The sun remains low in the sky and therefore has less strength. This means that healthy people do not have to protect themselves against the sun.
