The X-Men actor had a cancerous growth removed from his nose in 2013 and has since undergone two more facial surgeries and one on his shoulder.

Jackman, who admits he rarely protected his skin from the sun while growing up in Australia, has used his experience to encourage fans to wear sunscreen and he has now taken his campaign a step further by launching a line of lotions and sprays.

He has teamed up with suncare brand Made in America to release the Pure Sun Defense range in U.S. stores. The products feature well-known cartoon, film and superhero characters on the packaging to encourage children to use them and learn about sun safety.

Speaking of his cancer scares, Jackman tells People.com, "I go every three months for check-ups... It's the new normal for me. My doctor says I'll likely have more and if that's your cross to bear in life, you should be so lucky."
