Your Story Series: Meet Lynda

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.

    Checking your moles & why you should do it now

    Australians love the great outdoors and our sunny skies make the Australian lifestyle one of the most envied in the world. Notwithstanding, the extensive “Slip Slop Slap” campaign, many Australians are still exposing themselves to the severity and dangers of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.

    It's essential to check your skin regularly. Early detection of skin cancers is very important, especially for melanoma, as the survival rate is much greater when caught early. Research shows that it can sometimes be as little as a matter of months between when a melanoma is first detected to the point where it metastasises and becomes a lot more difficult to treat.

    This blog explores the reasons why despite the alarming increase in skin cancer rates the general public continue to expose their skin to the sun without protection. Reasons put forward include low levels of awareness of skin cancer, popular culture trends, the fact that we are living longer, spending more time outdoors, and concerns about Vitamin D.
