“I was a bad girl when I was younger and used olive oil to tan. Now, I’ve had 8 skin cancers cut out and am terrified I am causing more damage every time I go in the sun. Does anyone know what products can provide extra protection in your 60s? I’m thinking not just creams and sprays but also products like umbrellas or hats as I live near the beach and don’t want to move”.

Can you help her? What is your advice?
