What do you really know about skin protection?

There are a number of ways that you can protect your skin to prevent skin cancer.

  • Wear SOLBARI sun protective clothing that cover large areas of the skin.
  • Wear a SOLBARI sun hat with which blocks all the sun light
  • Wear sunglasses with a UV index of 3 to protect your eyes, the polarized ones tend to be more comfortable especially when on the water or fishing
  • Seek protection in the shade when possible
  • Use a broad spectrum sunscreen that provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays when the UV index hits 3 or above.
  • Do not sunburn
  • Do not use solariums

Remember it’s the UV radiation index that burns you, not the temperature!

We all know the saying prevention is the best medicine, well in the prevention of skin cancer this is absolutely true!

  1. Check your own skin every month. It takes 10 minutes and saves lives.
  2. Ask a family member or a friend or use a mirror for the areas which are hard to see (such as the back of the neck).
  3. Use a hairdryer on low heat to inspect your scalp.
  4. Keep a journal of your spots and moles.
  5. Report any spots or moles which are changing to your local GP or dermatologist.
  6. Remember that skin cancers, especially melanomas can occur on non sun-exposed sites such as the groin and feet. As a side note... did you know Bob Marley died of malignant melanoma under the nail of one of his toes?
  7. Remember to check all areas of the body, including between your toes, fingers and nails.

Tips On How To Maintain A Healthy Skin

At SOLBARI, we believe that PREVENTION IS THE BEST CURE. According to medical experts, this is particularly true when it comes to skin cancer and melanoma.

Sun exposure has been identified as the cause of 95% to 99% of skin cancers in Australia. 

Now, don't get us wrong. We are not suggesting you live in a cave or indoors when the sun is out, but rather than you use intelligent sun protective measures to help keep your skin safe when outdoors in the sun.
