Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide (1980s to present)
Over the years, the sun protection message has expanded to Slip! Slop! Slap! Seek! Slide! and Sid the Seagull has returned to our TV screens with a new and improved jingle. Sid asks us to protect ourselves in five ways from skin cancer whenever the UV level is three and above:
- Slip on sun protective clothing that covers as much of your body as possible.
- Slop on SPF 30+ broad spectrum sunscreen liberally to dry skin, at least 20 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every two hours when outdoors.
- Slap on a broad brimmed hat that shades your face, neck and ears.
- Seek shade.
- Slide on sunglasses.
