Guide to sun protection

Why should we be careful? Nobody wants to spend the entire summer indoors, and indeed some sunshine, below sunburn level, can be good for us, helping the body to create vitamin D and giving many of us a feeling of general wellbeing as we enjoy...

Don’t underestimate the dangers of being (active Don’t underestimate the dangers of being (active) in the sun without protecting your skin. The skin damage you now incur increases your chances of melanoma and other forms of skin cancer in later life. ⁠
⁠
The good news is that when diagnosed early, the survival chances of melanoma are high, but melanoma spreads relatively quickly and survival with metastatic melanoma is very limited. It is important to #spotyourdots fast!⁠

Dr. med. univ. Markus Wiesender @mwiesinga, surfer Dr. med. univ. Markus Wiesender @mwiesinga, surfer, dermatologist and ambassador for our #FasterThanSkincancer campaign, says: ⁠

"As a dermatologist, it’s my job to recognise and treat skin cancer. Your job is to take responsibility for yourself and your loved ones. You can do this by raising awareness, planning self-examinations and regular skin-checks by a specialist. Furthermore, it is very important to use sunscreen to protect you from harmful sun exposure, for body parts you can’t cover with your wet-suit. Always surf safe! " ⁠

"I was not #FasterThanSkincancer as I waited too l "I was not #FasterThanSkincancer as I waited too long to visit a dermatologist and to recognise the spot on my lower leg which turned out to be #melanoma. I wondered why I had never learned to do regular #skinchecks and how to #spotthedot. Right after my diagnose I founded @spot.the.dot and I'm happy to spend the coming year on this new #fts campaign. Designed by my dear friends at @betonbetonbeton. Have a look at www.fasterthanskincancer.org and let me know what you think!" - Marije, founder of Spot the Dot⁠

Athletes practicing outdoor #sports, such as #road Athletes practicing outdoor #sports, such as #roadcycling are at increased risk for #melanoma and nonmelanoma #skincancer. Frequently, athletes seem to know little about the risk of sun exposure.⁠
⁠
Protective means such as avoiding training and competition with considerable sun exposure, choosing adequate clothing, and applying water-resistant sunscreen still need to be propagated in the community of outdoor #sportsmen.⁠ This is why we have started our  #fasterthanskincancer⁠ campaign. ⁠
