Hi, my name is Lynn.
I used to shun the outdoors.
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.
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.

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.
But the good news is that taking care of your skin form now onwards may be able to help you to reduce the probability of skin cancers and minimise skin ageing.
Dermatologists recommend UPF50+ sun protective clothing and a broad brim sun hat as the first line of defence against premature skin ageing, sunburn, skin cancer and melanoma. Sunscreen with a SPF rating above 30 should be applied to skin that is directly exposed to the sun.
