Your Story Series: Meet Daina

Solbari blog: Your Story Series: Meet Daina

What is your name?

Hi, my name is Daina Peel.

Describe yourself.

I love cycling to work and on weekends.

What is your attitude towards sun protection today?

I wish I had started earlier! Just because I'm doing outdoor activity, doesn't mean I can't protect my skin from sun damage. Sun protection is very important to me as I care about my skin, in particular when we age we definitely see the damage we have done. It's the number 1 cause of ageing skin and the risk of cancer in our harsh climate is very real.

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

Please look after your beautiful young skin as once its damaged, you cant go back. Wear sun protection everyday and please don't sunbake.

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