Why do I need to know my own skin?

Why do I need to know my own skin?

As many of you already know, atSolbari we encourage everyone to get to know their skin and check it regularly.

The Skin
Here are some of the reasons why:

Your skin is your largest organ. The average adult has two square meters of it! It is your first line of defence from bacteria, harsh temperatures, damaging sunlight, pollution, UVA and UVB rays. You tend to encounter these pretty much every day of your life.

Sun damage is cumulative and takes years to appear in the form of moles, visible lines, wrinkles, sunspots and moles. If you are unsure about a mole or spot, you should get your GP, dermatologist or skin doctor to take a look at it. 

Getting to know your own skin will help you to better take care of it and also notice any new changes to it.

You are never too young or too old to check your skin. The earlier you start, the better you will be able to notice changes to it, identify new moles and the ones which change.

In Australia, it is recommended that individuals get their skin checked by a healthcare professional on a yearly basis.

But you should still check your own skin so that you can tell the healthcare professional about any concerns you may have or if you have noticed changes.

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, but if found and treated early, the chances of survival are extremely high. 

Professor Rosemary Nixon from The Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. reminds us all that: "Overexposure to the sun has been identified as the cause of around 99% of non-melanoma skin cancer and 95% of melanoma in Australia."
