Skin Cancer Action Week Competition


Tan is a sign of skin damage from too much exposure to UV radiation. Not only that it causes premature aging, it increases risks of skin cancer. Most skin cancers can be prevented by using a combination of sun protection methods and regularly checking for any unusal changes. To celebrate National Skin Cancer Action Week and all year round in the Northern Territory when UV level is 3 or above, Cancer Council NT is encouraging everyone to embrace your natural skin tone and #OwnYourTone by:

  • slip on sun-protective clothing
  • slop on SPF30 (or higher) broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen
  • slap on a broad-brimmed hat
  • seek shade
  • slide on sunglasses.
