Solbari blog: Your Story Series: Meet Lynda

What is your name?

Hi, my name is Lynda Fox.

Why is sun protection important to you?

I have a medical condition as well as Lupus.

What is your attitude towards sun protection today?

I have photosensitive skin and wear SunSense sunscreen ultra factor 50+ every day, I am always covered while in the sun. My life wasn't always like this though. How times have changed. Today I see how dangerous and painful the sun can be, no more sunbathing for me, or my husband or my son.

What would you tell your 16 year old self about sun protection?

My holidays consisted of getting the best suntan that I could, it was a must! If I could turn the clock back I wouldn't be racing for that sun bed, I would be happy to be able to walk around with a t-shirt and shorts on, be happy to swim outdoors, which of course that was all taken for granted.

    Thanks Lynda, for sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.
