Your Story Series: Meet Lynda Fox

What is your name?

Hi, my name is Lynda Fox.

Why is sun protection important to you?

I have a medical condition as well as Lupus.

What is your attitude towards sun protection today?

I have photosensitive skin and wear SunSense sunscreen ultra factor 50+ every day, I am always covered while in the sun. My life wasn't always like this though. How times have changed. Today I see how dangerous and painful the sun can be, no more sunbathing for me, or my husband or son.

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

My holidays consisted of getting the best suntan that I could, it was a must! If I could turn the clock back I wouldn't be racing for that sun bed, I would be happy to be able to walk around with a t-shirt and shorts on, be happy to swim outdoors, which of course that was all taken for granted.

    Thanks Lynda, for sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

    Can skin damage caused by the sun be repaired or even reversed?
    Can skin damage caused by the sun be repaired or even reversed?

    Your skin is your largest organ and has a long memory. Sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) damage is cumulative throughout your life. Research shows that sun damage contributes to more than 90% of wrinkles, brown spots, premature skin ageing as well as precancerous and cancerous skin lesions.

    Limiting sun exposure is very important, as the UV rays cause the most damage to the skin. It often takes many years and sometimes decades for the effects to become visible.
