Skin Health Series: Michele's Story

Skin Health Series: Michele's Story

What is your name?

Hi, my name is Michele.

What is your skin condition?

I was diagnosed with melanoma one year ago, although I have had always been careful with sunscreen 50+ and I have never sunbathed (but I am fair-skinned and with many moles).

How does your skin condition affect your day-to-day living?

Life has changed a lot. I take less 'exotic' trips, and do less walking in the sun and sitting in the park when I'm in the city on the weekends.

I don't swim in the sea out of fear. Despite wearing a t-shirt, I stay under the beach umbrella until after 7 pm. At least in this first year, I was very careful ... next year, we'll see.

What you have found to alleviate it?

For one year I have been using the cool Solbari t-shirts and I can say with certainty that they are effective. The fresh scar from my operation pinched under two layers of clothes walking on a sunny day in the city. Then I wore only the Solbari garment and no longer felt pinching from the scar.

Thank you Michele for helping raise awareness for skin conditions by sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

I'm big advocate for sun safety, so I'm very proactive with looking after my skin. I'm always pushing my friends and family to be more sun safe, I think most know the effects of the sun, but not to the extent they should. Most don't seem to understand the UV index, and how quickly you can get burnt in the middle of the day. There's still a long way to go for sun safety education!

As a teenager growing up in England my favourite summer pastime was sunbathing with friends. I have been extremely lucky to have not developed skin cancers (to date) and I am willing to start to take better care.

It's all about awareness really, and people are aware, they just need to take it seriously and notice it more. Knowing the consequences and being mindful of how easy it is to avoid, life in general, being out and about, is much easier, happier and less painful.
