This year Nicola Roberts has teamed up with Cancer Research to become the face of SunSmart – to try to encourage people to keep their skin safe and protected in the sun. It’s hard to believe we’re in the middle of summer in England at the moment, but there are still plenty of people yet to jet off to sunnier climes (yes I’m jealous!) and possibly (hopefully) some warmer days on the horizon.
It’s amazing how many people completely bypass using SPF… when I was in Ibiza, as well as lots of my group not using any protection, I saw a few people on the beach actually using baby oil in the sun, to try to get a tan quicker! I’m not denying the fact that a tan looks nice… but it will fade, the damage won’t. Every day, two people under the age of thirty-five are diagnosed with malignant melanoma, a shocking statistic that I think many people don’t consider. Next time you’re exposing your skin to the sun, think about this statistic and make sure you use sun protection. Make sure you’re not one of those two.
To help people celebrate fabulous skin, SunSmart have launched a competition where you could win VIP pampering; getting a makeover from Nicola Roberts’ make up artist as well as £100 Arcadia vouchers. To be in with a chance of winning, click the link at the end of this video.
