This summer Habia Skills Academy launches its Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign to encourage hair and beauty professionals to play their part in identifying early symptoms of skin cancer through their role working with clients.

Public awareness of cancer has never been higher, and yet skin cancer remains the fastest growing cancer in the UK, especially amongst young people. However, the chances of a positive outcome can be dramatically increased if it is caught early.

Through the Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign, HSA’s information packs is available for salons and training providers to help educate colleagues about the signs of skin cancer and raise awareness amongst clients.

“Getting people to seek advice and take the symptoms seriously is the most difficult part, but this is where industry professionals can play a valuable role. Staff will not take the job of GPs and doctors, instead they will simply identify what could be potential symptoms and recommend medical advice be sought.” says Habia MD - Rob Young, “Beauty may be only skin deep, but skin cancer is life changing. With the facts about skin cancer at their fingertips this summer, staff will be able to confidently identify symptoms and advise clients to seek appropriate medical guidance.”
