So, Get This

Remember how I was talking about the woman at the gym who was talking about how she got burned even though she was wearing SPF 6?

On Wednesday night she approached me in the locker room, "So, I am going to the beach this weekend. I think I should wear a stronger sunscreen, but I still want to get tan. Do you think 15 is too strong?"

"Let me put it this way," I replied. "I won't bother with anything less than 30, and I am still tan at the end of sailing season. You will get color, you just won't trash your skin."

"OK, that's good. But if I don't get any tan you're gonna hear about it," she laughed.

"Right now I have a bottle of spray SPF 70 in my Jeep that I put on when I am tooling around town."

"70? Are you kidding me?" she laughed again.

"Yeah, I really don't want to burn, at all, ever."

She headed for the door and said, "Have a nice workout, 70. I'll let you know how the 15 works out."

I have converted a confirmed sun-worshiper on the virtues of sunscreen, and picked up a new nickname simultaneously. Go me!

I've got to remember to re-apply sunscreen though out the day & that one application, in the morning, isn't going to last forever. Says the woman who's bra is hurting the sunburn on her back. lol

I have become much more concerned with sunscreen in the past few years. I don't wear it every day but whenever I am out for long periods of time and I never wear anything less than 30.
