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.

    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.
