Have you checked your skin lately?

When was the last time you had a skin check-up at your doctor or dermatologist?

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world - two to three times the rates in Canada, the U.S. and the UK.

Current data shows that two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70, and the majority of skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun.

So when you’re exercising outdoors, it’s so important to think about things like sunscreen, hats, and appropriate clothing. 

On this episode, Gab and Sarah look at the different types of skin cancers, who is most at risk, and some practical tips for how to give yourself the best possible sun protection.
