Any UV exposure can be harmful but determining the level of risk is complex. The risk varies for different individuals but what’s important is that each person understands their own particular risk profile – and this is determined by both environmental and family-related factors

What’s your skin shade? Fair, olive, dark? Know your skin type, know your risk. The paler your skin, the higher your risk of skin cancer. Melanoma does not discriminate, make skin checks part of your monthly routine.

We are very protective about tanned skin but we also realise that having a tan makes some people feel happy. If you feel better with a tan then this video shows you how easy it is to tan safely without exposing your skin to the harmful rays of the sun.

This is so powerful. Please, don’t ever think, or say, “It’s ONLY skin cancer”.

You've carried out a skin self-examination and found something you think might be skin cancer. Don’t bury your head in the sand, the quicker it’s diagnosed, the quicker it’s treated. If in doubt make an appointment to see your GP or a dermatologist 🙏

We have several doctors in our medical board. Not one advocate the use of sunbeds. Prescribed therapy is a different thing altogether - as we all know - and even then, disclaimers must be signed by patients, acknowledging risks.

Found that video diary very raw and hard to watch. Too close to home I guess. Check your moles peeps

It should now be beyond doubt that intentional tanning, and the use of sunbeds in particular, presents increased risk of skin cancer. We need public education, social change & regulation. What can we do about it? Sign the petition:
