Everyone’s favourite Essex girl, Denise Van Outen, is getting behind the Walk for Skin to help raise as much money as possible to fund the British Skin Foundation’s, the only charity in the UK dedicated to skin disease research.
Getting behind a charity fundraising event is always worthwhile, but there is another reason why Denise is supporting the Walk for Skin:
“My Nan lived to the ripe old age of 83, but she did get skin cancer in her later years, which really affected my attitude to looking after my skin and is the reason why I’m supporting the 2009 Walk for Skin”
Healthy skin brand Sanex supports the Walk for Skin and has been working closely with the British Skin Foundation since 2005, to help promote the importance of healthy skin.
