Her followers noticed that the 18-year-old model may have overdone her time in the sun, with many begging her to take action.

Posing in a skimpy ‘upside down’ bikini, Leni revealed not only her figure, but also her severely sunburnt skin.


“A little past sun kissed,” she joked in the caption, prompting followers to reprimand her.

“LENI!!!!! Wear your sunscreen!!!!!” one fan exclaimed.

“Coming from a person that has had 3 skin cancers removed…USE SUNSCREEN!” wrote another.

“Ouch. That’s gotta hurt. Take care, Leni,” added a third.

Some fans also were quick to send Leni skincare tips, so she could soothe her skin and avoid it happening again.

“Aloe Vera if you can find fresh, cut it open and rub the gel on sunburn, it will help tremendously. Been there, done that,” a helpful follower wrote.

“You need lots of moisturiser gel with aloe,” a second chimed in.

“That hurts me! Use sunblock with high zinc oxide,” another added.

After posting a set of selfies with her friend Ayva Magna, followers were dismayed to see that Leni’s skin was still extremely red.

“Be careful from that burn Leni, that’s so dangerous on your gorgeous skin!”

Australia's skin cancer rate

According to The Cancer Council NSW, over 95% of skin cancer is caused by UV radiation exposure, which usually comes from the sun.

“Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. About two in three Australians will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer before the age of 70,” their site reads.

The Australian cancer charity warns that sun exposure and sunburn can lead to skin cancer. While you don’t feel or see UV radiation, the damage it causes to your skin can be very harmful.
