Protect your skin and help you make good choices.
Shout out to the hottest temps on record.
I’m a summer kid. I may hate humidity with a vengeance. But when it comes to long days in the sun, preferably at the beach with a beverage in hand, I’m in heaven. Talk to my Mother, she’s a beach babe too. Heck, the whole family are beach babes. It’s in the DNA.
Something I haven’t always been great at is protecting my skin from the sun. Horrible would be a great way to describe it. A fact that became clear with some dark spots and boob freckles in my late twenties. But one too many nights spent drenched in aloe from the plant taught me a lesson that finally sunk in.
Wear more sunscreen, dummy! Haha.
These days, along with regular mole scans, I like to pay more attention to the impacts of the sun. Through sunscreen, coverage, reapplying (so important) and avoiding those peak burn times when possible. You know, making good choices. Hence, this little sun smart guide to help you do the same.
