I am fan of the sun, but as I get older (or shall I say, wiser), I have noticed a speckling of spots on my skins most delicate of areas. I am starting to wonder if all of those years basking poolside – literally huddled on the concrete – was doing my skin a macro-dose of harmful damage. EEEEEEEKKKK!!!
I am well aware that now that I live in Southern California I should be slathering myself with SPF each and every and ALLLLLL day long – but, sometimes I don’t. (kicking myself)…!
I was with my mother this past weekend and I noticed a raised mole on her back! A swimmer just like I am, I made her apparent to the mole immediately. You best believe that she is going to get checked by her dermatologist ASAP!
I am certain that you are as thrilled as I am that SPRING has SPRUNG. With the change of weather many of us are retreating to the beaches, parks and stripping the convertible tops down – it’s time we all take a bit more caution as to what the rays are doing to us. Let’s take some action and get the good goop on!
