Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world which is a result of harmful UV rays. Whenever the UV levels reach 3 or higher, sun safety is recommended to protect yourself and avoid sun damage.

Put simply, the more regularly you check your skin, the greater the chance of detecting a potentially pre-cancerous area of skin before it has the chance to progress to something more dangerous. Sun spots and skin cancers that are identified and treated early have a better outcome than most other types of cancer.
