National Skin Cancer Action Week

☀️ National Skin Cancer Action Week ☀️

The Australian climate is known for its harsh sun and high UV, which makes it so important for people to know about sun protection and skin checks for the early detection of skin cancers. With Summer approaching, the five forms of sun protection promoted by the Cancer Council includes:

• Slip on sun-protective clothing.

• Slop on SPF30 (or higher) broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen.

• Slap on a broad-brimmed hat.

• Seek shade.

• Slide on sunglasses.

Skin cancer has a 69% survival rate, and those odds are dramatically increased by early detection, making campaigns like this week a life-saving initiative.

When was your last skin check?
