NEW research has revealed nearly half of people in Scotland think sunscreen is too expensive with many deciding not to use it at all due to the price.
Wearing sunscreen is one of the most effective ways to protect against melanoma, a deadly but largely preventable form of skin cancer.
But the survey by charity Melanoma Focus found 46% of Scots regard it as too costly and 13% don’t use it at all because of the price.
