It’s no secret that Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world, but you might be surprised to know that it’s also the most common cancer amongst young Australians. And if you’re between the ages of 15 and 39 – that means you. Perhaps because Australians are sick of how we must ‘slip, slop, slap’ to prevent sun damage, Pretty Shady have decided the best way to drive awareness about skin cancer is to give out freebies. If you fill our your details here, you’re in the chance to win one of 2,500 Pretty Shady logo tees. You’ll also automatically be in the running to win one of their five limited edition Pretty Shady items which protect you from the sun: a sunbrella, t-shirt, hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. The idea is that by wearing one (or more) of these items, you’ll help stop sun damage and help prevent 95% of melanomas. The fact is in Australia, the rate of skin cancer grows every summer. That means two in every three of your friends will be diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their life.
If you’re an outdoorsy kind bloke who likes to play tennis or go surfing, don’t forget that one of the best ways to help prevent sun damage is to seek shade. Of course, you should also apply sunscreen every two hours (our favourite one is this) and put on a hat and sunglasses. If there’s such a thing as a meaningful freebie, then these Pretty Shady items are precisely that. Pretty Shady aiming to empower young Australians to become part of the generation that stops skin cancer. If you like that, then it’s time to get shady. Get more info about Pretty Shady here.
