How well do you know your own skin?

Your skin is your largest organ. It is your first line of defence against damaging sunlight, unsafe chemicals, extreme temperatures, harmful bacteria and other bugs you encounter every minute of every day.

Yet most Australians don't even know that their skin is an organ. They don't know how important a role it plays in keeping their bodies healthy and looking well.

Know Your Own Skin is a campaign designed to help you do just that – get to know your own skin. This website features lots of useful information, advice and tools that will help you get to know your own skin, check it regularly and take better care of it.

Know Your Own Skin has been created for the Australian public by leading Australian healthcare professionals, all of whom have a genuine interest in the health of your skin.
