Your Story Series: Meet Lynn

Solbari blog: Your Story Series: Meet Lynn

What is your name?

Hi, my name is Lynn.

Describe yourself.

I used to shun the outdoors.

What is your attitude towards sun protection today?

No longer afraid of enjoying the outdoors as long as I have adequate sun protection. To me theEveryday Hat which is perfectly wide brimmed, and a breathableUPF50+ zip top from Solbari lets me enjoy the outdoors without fear of getting sun damage.

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

Start sun protection and an early age and your skin will thank you when you are in your 40s.

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