The brunette also uploaded a short clip showing her digital check-up, which she said was ‘the most efficient way to check for skin cancers’.

She added: ‘I get mine every three months now and it takes about two hours! But it’s very thorough.’

Rachael’s timely skin check reminder comes after she posted before-and-after photos to Instagram of her melanoma after it was surgically removed.

The mother of two shared a photo of herself tanning in the sun in a skimpy bikini, writing: ‘I kick myself now – baking myself year after year.’

She said that she would use ‘little sunscreen’ or none at all during her time in the sun until her skin turned ‘so dark’.

Rachael circled her melanoma – which looked like a tiny freckle in the ‘before’ photo – then explained how she had to get 14 stitches, internally and externally, to remove it.

Ouch! Rachael’s skin check reminder comes after comes she posted photos of her melanoma after it was surgically removed. She circled her melanoma, which looked like a tiny freckle in the before photo (left), and then explained how she had to get 14 stitches to remove it (right, her stomach post-surgery)

‘That was my melanoma that was cut out – just a little black freckle nothing big or nasty just a freckle,’ she wrote, adding: ‘Get your skin checked!’

She concluded: ’14 stitches internal and external and I was lucky to catch it at earlier stages. If I’d waited even a few months, it would have been a whole different story!’

Rachael told The Daily Telegraph she’d missed her annual check-up after the birth of daughter, Gigi, two years ago – which could have been an opportunity to catch it earlier.

Emotional: Rachael said she she 'cried in front of the kids' upon being diagnosed with skin cancer. She and Braith share a daughter, Gigi, as well as two older children, Aleeia and Addison, from previous relationships (all pictured)

She went on to explain that she ‘cried in front of the kids’ when she learned of her stage-one melanoma diagnosis.

Doctors have told Rachael she must keep out of the sun and can’t go to the beach again in a bikini.

She is engaged to former NRL star Braith Anasta, 38. They announced their engagement in October last year.
