But last year, Rebecca received a terrifying call – after an innocent-looking white spot on her nose turned out to be skin cancer.
An Oklahoma teacher in the US, at 41, urges others to make the same mistakes as her and protect their skin.
Her warnings co-hosted me after The Sun launched its Dying For A Tan campaign last month to highlight the dangers of sun loungers and signs of skin cancer.
Rebecca describes herself as 'skinny skin' and was addicted to tan in her teenage years.
She said, "In my earlier years, I used to shine at least five to six times a week.
" They told me it was bad for me, but until it happened – I never listened.
"I loved the way the tan made me feel. It relaxed me, made me feel good, and gave me a glow that I loved.
" In high school and college, I never took care of my face I used facial pads like Noxema and Seabreeze, but that's it. "
It was only five years ago when Rebecca
she said: "I had to find a way to make extra money, so I started trading on the side businesses.  "I found a skin care company called Rodan + Fields.
" I decided to give it a try because as a teacher in Oklahoma, any little extra money would be amazing.
"I ordered the kit and soon fell in love with all skin regimens.
“The products made my skin healthier and better.  Dying For A Tan
There are approximately 7,000 tanning salons in the UK, some offering sessions of just 50p per minute.
Children as young as eight use lounges, with seemingly little understanding that they play Russian language Roulette with their health.
According to Cancer Research UK, the risk of skin melanoma cancer is 16-25 percent higher in people who have used a deck chair (any age) than people who have never no sunbeds were used.
This is because sun beds lull the skin with so strong UV rays that increase the risk of developing malignant melanoma – the most serious form of skin cancer.
Only 20 minutes in one are comparable to four hours in the sun – much stronger than the Mediterranean at noon.
In many cases, the damage is invisible until it is too late, as it may take 20 years to become apparent.
About 16,000 new cases of skin melanoma cancer are diagnosed in the UK every year – 44 every day.
There are about 2,300 melanoma skin cancer deaths annually – that's more than six every day.
This is part of the reason why the World Health Organization thinks that lounge chairs are as dangerous as smoking.
That's why Fabulous says it's time to stop Dying For A Tan.
"All the products I tried had SPF built in, so it was a huge bonus to my skin. I still sell and use Rodan + Fields today. "
Despite her changed outlook on skin care, Rebecca suspected something was wrong in August 2018 when she noticed that a dark spot appeared on her cheek.
She went to check it and while there the dermatologist noticed more a white spot on the tip of his nose that he immediately removed and sent
Rebecca said, "He asked me how long I had it, he had only been there for about two months or so.
" I thought it's just a bud that won't go away.
"He acts very concerned about the way he looks and immediately removes it to send
" I was very scared. Hearing the word cancer hurts.
"It's the worst feeling in the world because in the back of your mind you think about death."
Rebecca was told she had basal cell carcinoma of skin cancer and she underwent Moss surgery. this June to remove the affected skin layers.
It was left with a hole in its nose, which was repaired by a scapula on the forehead, where the next day a vein from the forehead was attached to the nose.
She wore the flap for four weeks before performing her last reconstructive surgery in July 2019.
After her surgery, Rebecca still has some swelling but is sharing her experience to encourage others to use sun protection. .
If you have any concerns about any spots on your body, go check it out. If it's nothing, then at least you have peace of mind.
Rebecca now takes extra care of her skin, wears sunscreen every day seamlessly and wears a hat when in the sun.
She also ensures that her children are well protected and always have sunscreen in their bags.
She said, "Protect your skin while you have it.
"Do not tan or expose your skin to sunlight without the use of sunscreen and head protection.
"Now I use Rodan + Fields every day, twice a day.
"I apply sunscreen in the morning, no matter.
What Is Basal Cell Carcinoma Of Skin Cancer?
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a non-melanoma skin cancer that usually develops in the outermost layer of the skin known as the epidermis.
It represents 75 percent of all skin cancers.
BCC is also known as a rodent ulcer and usually manifests as a small, pink or white waxy lump.  In some cases, it may look like flaky, red spots on the skin, and there may be brown pigment inside the patch.
Usually, the lump becomes larger over time and can bleed, get crusted or transform into a painless ulcer.
The tumor can usually be detected on the skin exposed to the sun, such as the face, shoulders, arms, ears, upper chest and back.
Surgery is often the most common treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer.
It involves the removal of the cancer tumor and the skin that surrounds it.
In total, Hugh Jackman performed six surgeries to remove his skin cancer to help him heal from BCC.
The most recent procedure was last year when he shared a picture of himself after having his skin cut off from his nose again.
