Hi, my name is Lynn.
I used to shun the outdoors.
No longer afraid of enjoying the outdoors as long as I have adequate sun protection. To me theEveryday Hat which is perfectly wide brimmed, and a breathableUPF50+ zip top from Solbari lets me enjoy the outdoors without fear of getting sun damage.
Start sun protection and an early age and your skin will thank you when you are in your 40s.
Thank you Lynn for helping raise awareness for skin cancer, melanoma and skin conditions, and sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

Your skin is your largest organ and has a long memory. Sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) damage is cumulative throughout your life. Research shows that sun damage contributes to more than 90% of wrinkles, brown spots, premature skin ageing as well as precancerous and cancerous skin lesions.
It is very difficult to the untrained eye to identify melanomas and skin cancers because they can come in many different shapes and sizes.
As Associate Professor Rosemary Nixon from the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. says, "the earlier a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better the chance of avoiding surgery, or in the case of a serious melanoma or skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death."
