Jackman was recently treated for basal cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer, for what is believed to be his sixth time in more than three years.

"It's a basal cell carcinoma, everything's fine," said Jackman, sporting a small bandage on his nose. "It is skin cancer but the least dangerous form of it, so it's just something I have to get out after being an Aussie with English parents, growing up in Australia, it's sort of the new normal for me."

"But everything's fine," he insisted. "People have been so lovely, thank you."

The Logan star also shared skin care advice, encouraging viewers to "wear sunscreen" and "get a check-up."

"So here's the thing: One sunburn, you're susceptible to cancer. One. And all of this is 25, 30 years after, the doctor told me," he said. "Our rule, as kids, growing up, was you get burned and peel two or three times, then you're set."

While Jackman is certainly more careful now, he still enjoys some fun in the sun. Last April, the actor and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary by splashing around on the beach in St. Barts.
