BONUS | Skin Checks and Sun Protection with Dr Cara McDonald

In this bonus episode of the Glow Journal podcast, host Gemma Watts is joined by dermatologist Dr Cara McDonald who is here to answer all of your questions on skin checks and sun protection. 

This summer saw La Roche-Posay and Skin Check Champion’s ‘House of Healthy Skin’ tour the east coast of Australia, providing 1342 individuals with a free skin check. Over 80% of those people had never had their skin checked before, so we took to Instagram to find out why before I passed your skin check questions onto the expert.

For complete transparency from the outset, this episode is sponsored by La Roche-Posay Australia, however all of Dr McDonald’s views are her own and, as per all of our Ask An Expert interviews you will hear absolutely no specific product recommendations throughout this interview.

In this conversation, Dr Cara answers your questions on skin checks and sun protections- from how to physically book a skin check if you’ve never had one before and a run down of what we can expect in our appointment, through to what we should be keeping an eye out for on our own skin, how often we should really be getting our skin checked, and what level of sun protection is actually necessary as we head into winter.
