Melanoma UK hit back recently that the rates of skin cancer, which has soared in the past few years, should not be blamed on package holidays.

Melanoma UK’s Founder, Gill Nuttall said: “We feel it is quite wrong to blame the package holiday or a cheap flight for the increase in skin cancer.  It is not the ability to travel that is the problem, it is the behaviour once holiday makers arrive at their destination.  Laying on a beach for hours at a time with the intention of getting the ‘golden tan’: that is the problem.  We simply cannot blame the package holiday for the rise in skin cancer”.

With millions of people heading overseas over the next few weeks as the school holidays begin, leading holiday comparison and deals website icelolly.com is looking to support Melanoma UK’s efforts to raise awareness of the dangers of the sun and remind holidaymakers to have fun in the sun but take care while away.

Staying safe in the sun has become ever-more important while on holiday, both abroad and in the UK” said Richard Singer, CEO, icelolly.com. “Holidays are about creating lasting memories for the right reasons, not the wrong reasons. We’re looking forward to working with this important charity on their Sun Safety Campaign and help raise awareness of the need to take care of ourselves and our family with a view to avoiding short term problems such as dehydration, sun stroke and sunburn and, longer term, to prevent skin cancer.”

Melanoma UK’s advice is to continue seeing the world, but ditch the tan and never use sunbeds.  Use high factor sunscreens, keep out of the midday sun, keep children protected, and make sure regular skin checks are carried out, every month is fine and report any worries to a GP.
