Your skin is for life and it has memory. Protect it!

“I am 25 years old and, like any young girl, I have always loved sunbathing, especially when I became interested in fashion. That’s when I started sunbathing like crazy and burning myself.”

Montse was getting by her mother’s reprimands for not putting on protective cream. One day a spot grew on her leg. The dermatologist didn’t like how it looked. It looked like melanoma.

“I had no idea what it was, but from the look on my mother’s face and the doctor’s face I knew it was not good news.”

Montse did not do well with the sun and the sun turned into her enemy. If you have fair skin, are blonde or red-haired and have light-coloured eyes, protect yourself even more. Stay in the shade from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wear long clothes, sunglasses and sunscreen with 30 SPF+ protection. Do not use tan artificially and do check your skin for spots. Never forget that the skin, in addition to being the largest organ in our body and the most exposed, also has a good memory and remembers the time you were exposed to the sun.

In our brokerage people ask us if Health Insurance includes Dermatologists. Yes, of course! Some design prevention programs and even carry out check-ups for moles that vary in size and shape.

Insurance specialists also diagnose and cure skin conditions, mucous membranes, hair and nails. They even treat other pathologies such as hair loss, herpes, fungi, and more.

Our advice: watch the skin and if you have any marks, go see a specialist. If you don’t know how to do this, ask us. We can review your medical chart and reimbursement options.
