Melanoma UK has teamed up with consumer favourite tanning brand Skinny Tan to encourage the UK to 'fake it, don't bake it' this summer in an effort to drive change behaviour and stop the rates of skin cancer increasing.

Skinny Tan ambassador Liberty Poole is also joining the brands campaign, which encourages us to stay safe in the sun and opt for self tanners over damaging UV rays.  

Star of Love Island and Dancing on Ice, Liberty is known for her flawless glowing tan 365 days of the year; following a recent personal skin cancer scare she knows better than most the risks and worry associated with sun beds and sunbathing.

Liberty says "When I came out of Love Island I had this weird mole pop up on my tummy, so I went the doctor to get it checked out.  I was worried it could be skin cancer.  The doctor says it's best I get it removed in case it turns into something.  I am really passionate about sun safety, especially after my scare, so I'm excited to be partnering with Skinny Tan and Melanoma UK to encourage everyone to fake it this summer!"

We are delighted to team up with Skinny Tan to help improve public awareness on how important it is to be sun safe and to carry out regular skin checks.  Melanoma is one of the few cancers we can see for ourselves, that means we have the power to catch it early and if we do, we stand a better chance of dealing with it

To help you get your glow on safely this summer, Skinny Tan has created the perfect bundle for popping in your suitcase, full of Liberty's faves, whether it is a staycation or tropical destination you'll be enjoying. Skinny Tan have also generously donated £1 from every purchase of the FAKE IT DON'T BAKE IT Summer tanning bundle.
