Skin Health Series: Michele's Story

Skin Health Series: Michele's Story

What is your name?

Hi, my name is Michele.

What is your skin condition?

I was diagnosed with melanoma one year ago, although I have had always been careful with sunscreen 50+ and I have never sunbathed (but I am fair-skinned and with many moles).

How does your skin condition affect your day-to-day living?

Life has changed a lot. I take less 'exotic' trips, and do less walking in the sun and sitting in the park when I'm in the city on the weekends.

I don't swim in the sea out of fear. Despite wearing a t-shirt, I stay under the beach umbrella until after 7 pm. At least in this first year, I was very careful ... next year, we'll see.

What you have found to alleviate it?

For one year I have been using the cool Solbari t-shirts and I can say with certainty that they are effective. The fresh scar from my operation pinched under two layers of clothes walking on a sunny day in the city. Then I wore only the Solbari garment and no longer felt pinching from the scar.

Thank you Michele for helping raise awareness for skin conditions by sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

The introduction of “lockdowns”, the restriction of movement and non-essential healthcare activities being suspended have had an impact on the diagnosis of cancer cases including skin cancer. 

Countries around the World are now evaluating the unintended consequences of Covid-19 restrictions on the diagnosis of cancer. Sadly, cancer related death rates are expected to increase over the coming years due to the delay in diagnosis.

Don't miss these 7 areas when protecting your skin

In this blog we highlight 7 areas which people often forget to protect and can cause serious sunburns and skin damage...

1. Ears: Have you ever had blistering, peeling ears? Well, it's pretty painful and not a good look. Don't forget to apply sunscreen on your ears, the upper area and behind them. 

2. Eyelids: It's a very delicate area, where the skin is sensitive and thin. Category 3 sunglasses will help protect the eyes as well as a wide brim sun hat.
