Beauty Blogger Shares Truth About Cancer Treatment

Lisa Guthrie, 33, has drawn in tens of thousands of people to her “Tried and Tested” Facebook page. There, she shares deals and coupons for beauty salons and products she personally recommends. In addition, the mother of two has recently revealed she spent months privately battling skin cancer.

Guthrie said, “I tried to keep it under wraps because I had so much going on. I put on a brave face, but the truth was that inside I was terrified.”

As a teen, Guthrie was obsessed with tanning. When she was 16-years-old, her parents bought her a tanning bed, which she used every night. Guthrie also said she would fall asleep for up to an hour. As Guthrie got older, she continued to sunbathe regularly, often taking naps outside in the sun wearing just a bikini, oil and low-SPF sunscreen.

After her dermatologist removed irregular moles, the specialist told her she had been diagnosed with malignant melanoma.

Guthrie said, “I couldn’t believe it. I’d had moles removed in the past and there had never been any issues, so I thought this would be the same.” The specialists did catch the cancer in its early stages. Guthrie modified her lifestyle to avoid the sun.

She said, “There are a lot of young girls out there just hammering the sunbeds. I did when I was younger." She added, “...My message to women out there is to protect and look after their skin as much as possible. There is a lot of fantastic spray tans out there, there is no need to be using sunbeds.”
