Hi, my name is Alanna.
Curious, caring and animal loving.
I have sensitive skin so I am extremely careful when it comes to sun exposure. I love being outside but I burn easily in the harsh New Zealand sunlight. Solbari clothing offers me convenient sun protection without having to slather sunscreen absolutely everywhere! I also find Solbari very useful for protecting tattoos whilst they're healing.
Thankfully I grew up knowing the importance of sun protection and have always worn sunscreen. My mum has sun damage from routine sun exposure throughout her life so I learned that lesson early and always made sure to protect my skin. If anything I would say thank you to my 16 year old self for being smart about sun protection!
Thank you Alanna for helping raise awareness for skin cancer, melanoma and skin conditions, and sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

Below are 7 areas which people often forget to protect from the sun and can cause serious sunburn and skin damage...
1. Ears: Have you ever had blistering, peeling ears? Well, it's pretty painful and not a good look. Don't forget to apply sunscreen on your ears, the upper area and behind them.
2. Eyelids: It's a very delicate area, where the skin is sensitive and thin. Category 3 sunglasses will help protect the eyes as well as a wide brim sun hat.
