Another reason to stay sun safe.

‘I know you’ve heard me talk about my basal cell carcinomas before. I’m going to keep talking about them, if need be. And if it reminds even one person to put on sunscreen with a high SPF, then I’m happy’, he wrote.

This is not the first time Jackman has taken to social media to issue a call to action.

In 2021, Jackman took to Instagram to encourage his followers to get regular skin cancer checks.

“Getting it checked, so if you see a shot of me with this on do not freak out; thank you for your concern. I’ll let you know what’s going on but they think it’s probably fine.”

The Wolverine actor went on to deliver an important reminder to his fans when it comes to caring for their skin.

Back in 2017, the Greatest Showman actor had a cancer removed from his face – the sixth one in two years.

Posting a photo on Instagram at the time, the star delivered a similar message about wearing sunscreen.

“Another basal cell carcinoma,” he wrote. “Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with the dressing on than off. I swear! #wearsunscreen.”
