How to help a Dane

Shade

Help a Dane by reminding him to go into the shade as often as possible. Many Danes do not know that the sun can be twice as strong abroad as in Denmark.

Sun hat

Help a Dane by telling him that the most effective sun protection is a sun hat with a wide brim and clothing that covers upper arms and thighs.

Sunscreen

Help a Dane by offering him sunscreen. The sunscreen should be at least SPF 30 and must be applied in a thick layer.
