What is your name? 

Hi, my name is Olivia Baxter.

Describe yourself.

I’m a caring, sporty and enthusiastic person.

How did you discover your skin cancer / melanoma / skin condition and how long ago?

I have a skin mole on my face which has been examined and is not a cancer but still needs to be watched for any change. This was discovered 6 years ago and I need to have another one soon. You shouldn’t take any risks with your skin.

What is your attitude towards sun protection today?

I usually wear a hat, put on sunglasses and apply sunscreen regularly.

What would you tell your 16-year-old self about sun protection?

I would tell my 16 year old self to take optimal care of your skin because it can be damaged, which can be life threatening. Being a red head girl I burn like crazy!

Thank you Olivia for helping raise awareness for skin cancer, melanoma and skin conditions, and sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

Can skin damage caused by the sun be repaired or even reversed?
Can skin damage caused by the sun be repaired or even reversed?

Your skin is your largest organ and has a long memory. Sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) damage is cumulative throughout your life. Research shows that sun damage contributes to more than 90% of wrinkles, brown spots, premature skin aging as well as precancerous and cancerous skin lesions.

Limiting sun exposure is very important. As the UV rays cause the most damage to the skin.

It often takes many years and sometimes decades for the effects to become visible.

But the good news is that taking care of your skin from now onwards may be able to help you to reduce the probability of skin cancers and minimise skin aging.

Your Story Series: Meet Andrew

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!
