British Awareness Days May

Taking care of your skin has never been so important Skincare Awareness Week 16-22 May 2016 brought to you by DestinationSkin

Skincare Awareness Week


Skincare Awareness Week – Last year DestinationSkin empowered the UK population to become #Skincareaware.  Giving thousands of free skin checks they urged people to take basic steps to protect skin from daily UV damage.  Following last years’ success, DestinationSkin are back, bringing awareness to even more people than before.


We’re all born with healthy skin, but certain factors damage our skin throughout day-to-day life, meaning it can happen at any time.  We’re all susceptible to UV damage which isn’t always visible to the naked eye.  Many of us have caused damage or premature ageing to our skin without even knowing, the most serious of which is skin cancer (melanoma) with over 200,000* new cases diagnosed each year.

A study of the UK public* conducted by DestinationSkin found that:

  • 74% of people claimed to be #Skincareaware
  • But only 39% wear a specific SPF product
  • Less than 20% wear an SPF daily


DestinationSkin’s ‘SkincareAware campaign is designed to help protect, prevent, hydrate and correct past and future skin damage and premature ageing.  The team are giving away free skin scans throughout the campaign to prove their commitment to your skin health.  A skin scan is a quick and easy way to take a deeper look at the health of your skin to identify areas of sun damage (pigmentation) and dehydration.
