Townsville summers are incredible, but the skin damage that comes with days spent at the Strand are quite the opposite.
Let's be honest though, with the high amounts of sunshine that we have in Townsville and our alarming levels of Melanoma, it's important that we're being sun safe in all seasons.
The sad reality is that some people have turned away from using sunscreen due to reactions.
That's why labelling all ingredients is so important, to help us (the consumer) make an informed decision.
The team at MooGoo on the Gold Coast are passionate about this becoming a regulation and their Product Research and Developer Kate Worrell spoke with me about it.
Taking care of my skin is super important to me given how fair it is, and where I live- beautiful North Queensland!
Next month I'll be going to my annual skin check at MoleMap on Ross River Road, I'll tell me more about those soon.
