Prevention | Melanoma Institute Australia

Prevention | Melanoma Institute Australia | Tegan's Healthy Lifestyle Articles | Scoop.it

This article, from the Australian melanoma institute, is very short but accurate and talks about the prevention of melanoma. The article recommends five ways of protecting yourself from he sun. These are: SEEKING shade to avoid being fully exposed to the sun, SLIPPING on clothes to cover as much of your skin as possible, SLOPPING on sunscreen, SLAPPING on a broad hat and SLIDING sunglasses on to protect your eyes from the sun. Also included on this website page is a small article about sunscreens and how important they are when you are in the sun. I think that most teenagers should read this article as they don’t realise just how damaging the sun can be.

This is an article from Australia's cancer council, which talks about skin cancer. The article clearly states that you should get to know all the freckles, moles, blemishes and birthmarks on your body well so that it is easier for you to notice a difference if there is one. It also recommends that everyone should get their skin professionally checked every three months. The article gives examples of what you should look for when you check your skin yourself, how you should check your skin and when. The article recommends checking your entire body from head to toe, including in places, which are normally not very exposed such as your scalp. It has been made obvious in the article that early detection of skin cancer is much better than being late.
