Check your skin today

If you love the outdoors, love your skin more. Australia is recognized as an outdoor loving country, but it’s also known for the harsh sun and high cases of Melanoma. 1,500 people in Australia died from melanoma in 2012, which is four people a day, very sobering statistics. The deaths for 2015 were 1,675, which are from 12,960 melanoma cases diagnosed.

Therefore, wear appropriate sunscreen and clothing.

Make sure you see your GP and have your skin checked regularly.
