As a little kid, your mom slathering you with sunscreen before you were allowed to go play in the pool seemed agonizing. We all probably remember that lengthy process, of waiting for mom to lather every inch of your skin in the thick white lotion. Just standing there in the scorching hot heat, waiting for it to be over, while all we wanted to do was hop in the pool. I’m pretty sure we’ve all heard the phrase “mother knows best”, and that most dreaded reoccurring moment from our childhoods applies to that phrase as well.
Sunscreen is the Holy Grail of beauty products. It helps prevent facial spotting, discoloration, as well as helping to slow down the formation of wrinkles (so no prematurely aging skin!). I don’t know about you guys, but I like to carry a leather bag, not look like one. Whenever your skin changes color, that’s its way of protecting itself and calling out for help. It might take a couple of extra minutes now, but you’ll be looking years younger later in life! Pale = the new tan!
