FRIDAY = FASTER THAN SKINCANCER ⁠
⁠
Well, actually every day we should have a little routine to check our skin after we had a shower and take note of any changes or suspicious spots. Ideally it will become as normal as brushing our teeth. ⁠

One of these happenings that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside: our friends from #VansVienna (@authentic.san) did some fundraising for #spotthedot this summer by selling #sunscreen (donated by the neighbouring DM shop) at a #skate and #bmx event (omg how sweet is that!). Spot the Dot used the profit to produce this banner which will appear on future #VansVienna events. ⁠
⁠
I am truly always blown away by everyone of you who supports #spotthedot. ❤️⁠

Are you #fasterthanskincancer⁠ in autumn and winter too?⁠
Some people ask me: can the winter sun cause skin cancer?⁠
⁠
The truth is, the sun produces harmful UV rays all year round – even on cloudy days and during cold winter months. Plus, some studies have identified an effect known as cloud enhancement of UV radiation, in which the sun’s rays are reflected in the clouds and, as a result, become amplified and even more dangerous. Also, some winter activities such as #skiing take place at high altitudes where the sun’s UV rays are more intense, the thinner atmosphere is less effective at blocking them, and the #snow reflects and magnifies them. All of these factors can increase your risk of developing skin cancer during the winter.⁠

SUMMER IS OVER, NOW WHAT?⁠
Like many people, you’re probably aware that exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the number one cause of skin cancer. #Basalcellcarcinoma, #squamouscellcarcinoma and #melanoma are collectively the most common types of cancer. However, these conditions are often preventable.⁠
⁠
You’ve hopefully already developed the positive habit of slathering on #sunscreen before you head #outdoors in the summertime. But, maybe you aren’t quite as vigilant when it’s cool or cloudy outside, or when the seasons change and the earth’s atmosphere blocks some of the sun’s harmful rays. This is a potentially harmful mistake! ⁠

Meet our new #fasterthanskincancer ambassador Mario ( @mightymax_777) from Vigo, #Spain.⁠
⁠
"If I had to define skateboarding in just a few words I would say that it is the closest thing to freedom, as it gives you this healthy, unique independence. The truth is that I was not a very cautious person in terms of #sunprotection during skateboarding, besides that the cap always goes with me! Until recently I never bothered to check my skin. Only when a friend told me about the #spotthedot campaign I have done a little research on #melanoma and I know I will start doing skinchecks now! People should know more about skincancer as it is an important topic."⁠ -@mightymax_777⁠

Isn't it amazing to see we are getting support from all over the world? ⁠

This is what my current mood looks like. Just remember #sweaterweather still requires sun protection...⁠
⁠
⁠
Blazing heat shouldn't be the only reminder to use sunscreen.⁠
⁠
Summer has slipped away, but fall should also be a prime time to be mindful about sun protection, experts say. Dermatologists warn that cooler months are dangerous because the sunshine of summer, which serves as a reminder to reach for sunscreen, is gone.⁠
⁠
"People slack off because the sun is a little bit less strong," said Dr. George Hruza, a St. Louis #dermatologist and president of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. (Source: Skin Cancer Foundation)⁠
