Have you had your skin check?

This year I’m continuing to improve my skin cancer knowledge by completing certificates from the Australasian College of Dermatologists.

Skin cancer will affect 2 in 3 Australians at some point in their lives so it is important to have your skin checked regularly. If you notice any new or changing moles, for example a change in size, shape, colour or whether they are itchy or bleeding, be sure to book in for a full skin check.

Of course prevention is the best cure, so don’t forget the sun block for days when the UV index is 3 or higher.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Can you guess which boat I was captain of today? 🛥🔆🧐 Answer tomorrow.

If you’re headed over to the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show this weekend make sure you slop on plenty of sunscreen because even if you think you’ll only stay a short while, trust me, you won’t.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

What’s your skincare routine?

We may be coming into winter but that doesn’t mean you should stop looking after your skin.

In fact during these cooler climates it’s important to pay more attention to your skin as it may dry and crack. Regularly moisturise to keep your skin supple and hydrated and don’t forget the sun block for days when the UV index is 3 or higher. And of course, great skin comes from within so make sure you keep yourself well hydrated with plenty of water.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Mountains, coconut trees, corals, clear blue seas.. sounds too good to be true. ⛰🥥🏝 I’m thrilled to be working in this tropical paradise for the next two weeks.

What I’ve noticed so far is the hotter climate. UV index is high everyday so whilst I’m here I’m encouraging you all to come in and have a skin check.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Australia: sun, beaches, rainforests and..vitamin D deficiency? ☀️ It’s hard to believe that despite having such great climates, 1 in 4 Aussies are thought to be vitamin D deficient with 7% of us having a moderate or severe deficiency.

Vitamin D is a hormone in our body that regulates our calcium levels in our blood. It’s therefore important for good bone and muscle health. Recent research has shown that having a deficiency is linked to an increased risk of bowel cancer, heart disease and auto-immune diseases.

Exposure to UVB radiation (from the sun) is the main source of vitamin D. Once we’re exposed to this our body goes through a number of changes to make vitamin D. You can also get vitamin D through some dietary sources such as milk, oily fish and eggs.

There are certain groups of people who are at risk of deficiencies, including people with naturally dark skin as the pigment inside skin (melanin) acts as a filter to UVB radiation. Older frail adults, those wearing concealing clothing for religious or cultural reasons and night shift workers are also at risk.

The safest time to get your UVB radiation from the sun is when the UV index is below 3. If the UV index is above 3 be sure to wear protection, most people will get their quota of vitamin D through a few minutes of day to day activity.

So Australia, let’s get our bones nice and strong for 2019 🦴💪 Take care and stay healthy x
