With the number of malignant melanomas continuing to rise, during 2016 SunSense was on a mission to tackle this problem head-on. The SunSense Dying for a Tan Tour returned to the UK, educating the public on the dangers of UV rays and promoting a healthy attitude to sun protection.
Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the UK, but many overlook the risks in favour of a tanned appearance. Using an ultraviolet camera, the SunSense Dying for a Tan Tour showed you the hidden damage caused to skin by sun exposure and other sources of UV rays.
In 2015, 70% of the 2,000 people photographed said they would change their tanning habits.. We want everyone to know that tanning isn’t a sign of good health. Watch the tour highlights to see how we have educated people this summer!
