National Skin Cancer Action Week

Protect your skin

National Skin Cancer Action Week

The South West of WA is a mecca for sun lovers, who live here or visit our beaches lifestyle, hot weather and outdoor activities. 

In summer, the minority few Slip, Slop, Slap and wear rashies, but many people have a ‘she’ll be right mate’ attitude, or think it is too late for them.

Compounding the skin cancer issue, research is showing surprising and shocking information about the toxic chemicals that are contained in many of the skincare (including sunscreen), personal care and cosmetic products we put on our bodies. 

Over time, toxicity builds up and results in inflammation that silently damages our tissues. 

Research also shows that 1 in 5 women who survive breast cancer have their lymph nodes removed and many end up with lymphoedema (swelling) of one arm, a serious life-long condition that needs managing with a compression sleeve.

Perth-based owner and creator of Slinky Sleeves Christine Silbert and Wellness Coach Sharon Gleeson found that there interests and knowledge had common ground and are working together to spread awareness.

They are bringing their information with some practical solutions in Free Information Sessions and display of stylish sun protection and coverup products to Bunbury on Thursday 30 November at the Seaview Apartments Café in Ocean Drive at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 6pm.

On Friday 1 December, they will be at the Good Egg Café in Albert Street at 8am and 10am.

Please RSVP to Christine on 0407 479 691.
