Cancer Research UK is warning people to be careful with sunbeds and sunny weather.
Who is the most at risk of skin cancer?
- Fair skin
- Moles or freckles
- Red or fair hair
- Light coloured eyes
- Family history of skin cancer

If you have naturally brown or black skin you are much less likely to develop skin cancer. This is because people with naturally brown or black skin have more melanin pigment in their cells. This helps protect the skin from damaging UV rays.
