Use Protection


When I was growing up, it was cool to get as burned and tanned as possible. My friends and I would slather baby oil on our skin and lay on tin foil so we could attract the sun’s harmful rays quicker. WTF? Where were our mothers? Oh, I remember now, they were “laying out” too, but they used Bain De Soleil for the “San Tropez tan”. We weren’t allowed to use that because it was expensive (but we sneaked it anyway). And back then, it wasn’t common to talk about skin cancer and the damaging effects the sun had on your skin, we just wanted to see whose tan line was darker. But today, just 20 minutes in the sun without protection will get me a few new freckles and lines. I carry a tube of sun block in my handbag at all times and now that we’re heading into the summer months, my favorite cover-up is a big floppy hat. They never go out of style, they protect your face from the blistering heat and they are fashionable. Hats off to you for protecting the only skin you’ll ever have!
