Take good care of your skin!
If you are like me and have fair skin, freckles and burn in the sun having it checked yearly is super important.
I make the conscious effort to see it to specialist every 12 months to check my skin.
I recently had my annual skin check and my doctor found a suspicious spot on my back which had to be removed and biopsied.
I was one of the lucky ones! Results came back all clear but at that I was scared and worried that it could be something nasty.
This was the fifth skin spot I have had removed.

If you have never had check of it, I recommend you make the time to make the appointment.
