With summer on its way many people are looking forward to relaxing in the sunshine or working on their tan in a sunbed. What you might not realise is that this common practice can cause real damage to your skin! sk:n clinics have teamed up with Cancer Research UK to show the hidden damage that the UV rays of both natural sun and sunbeds can do. The R UV Ugly? Campaign has already visited cities across the country, and the next stops are Telford and Wolverhampton. Check out the sk:n website to book your appointment.
You might think that you don't need such a scan - after all, you look healthy! Of course, that is precisely why these skin scans are so helpful. UV damage is not always visible to the naked eye until it is too late and you have begun to develop skin tags and changes in skin pigmentation. Normally, the only way to see how badly your skin has been damaged by UV rays would be to shell out £25 for a specialist skin scan, but the R UV Ugly? Campaign gives you the chance to get one of these skin scans, performed by trained sk:n clinics staff, for free.
Without knowing the hidden damage that UV rays doing to your skin you are leaving yourself open to the risk of developing various skin conditions. Overexposure to UV rays can lead to skin conditions including the development of skin tags and changes in your skin pigmentation such as the developments of white spots on face areas. You also put yourself at an increased risk of developing melanoma, a serious type of skin cancer.
