Your Story Series: Meet Alanna

Solbar blog: Your Story Series: Meet Alanna

What is your name?

Hi, my name is Alanna.

Describe yourself in 3 to 5 words.

Curious, caring and animal loving.

What is your attitude to sun protection today?

I have sensitive skin so I am extremely careful when it comes to sun exposure. I love being outside but I burn easily in the harsh New Zealand sunlight. Solbari clothing offers me convenient sun protection without having to slather sunscreen absolutely everywhere! I also find Solbari very useful for protecting tattoos whilst they're healing.

What would you tell your 16 year old self about sun protection?

Thankfully I grew up knowing the importance of sun protection and have always worn sunscreen. My mum has sun damage from routine sun exposure throughout her life so I learned that lesson early and always made sure to protect my skin. If anything I would say thank you to my 16 year old self for being smart about sun protection!

    Thank you Alanna for helping raise awareness for skin cancer, melanoma and skin conditions, and sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

    "I would tell my 16 year old self that getting a tan from the sun is so not worth it. A spray tan or self tanner is a way better option that burning your skin and the risk of getting skin cancer."
