Sunscreen is a must! on May 23, 2015 @ 09:25 am

I always wear sunscreen when I know I'll be out in the sun for a considerable amount of time. I don't purposely lay my body out to roast solely because I'm aware of the damage that can cause. But when I'm out for a walk or a run or at the park or the beach, what have you, I always wear sunscreen though I don't mind that I still get a little bit of color. A reasonable amount of sunshine is good for you (your body needs it, actually), it's just important not to go overboard.

I used to sun bathe here and there in the summer but I still put a low SPF sunscreen on to protect my skin somewhat. I don't tan excessively though and I do wear sunscreen if I know I'll be out in the sun all day. I have had bad sun burn before and it made me learn my lesson!! It's super painful and not fun to have..

Lol I use Sun screen sometimes only on badly sunny days. I do sit out in the sun and tan then I use tanning lotion (of course I'm not doing that right now I don't know how good it is tanning while pregg so I stop that for now) but as a teenager I did some pretty bad screwed up thingsfor a quick tan. I used vegetable oil on my skin and laid in the sun and I at one point used motor oil. Lol I know it's bad and I roasted like you wouldn't imagine. Where I was going to high school it was all Italians and tanned was considered good looking so I wanted to fit in of course and me I'm scotish, Irish, and English background so I'm WHITE lol the lengths i went just to be cool amazes me !

I used to sun bathe, but after a relative of mine had to have surgery on her face to remove a cancerous spot, I've since stopped the whole sunbathing thing. When I do plan on being out in the garden or something, I always make sure to use sunscreen, and often I'll wear a light blouse that covers more skin but doesn't get too hot. Having a tan is not worth the risk of not using sun protection.

Hi y'all. A very wonderful topic and no, I don't sunbathe. I admit many many moons ago I did. I learnt the hard way and to use sunscreen. My late Grandfather died of melanoma on November 17th 2001. He had it behind his eye, as it can grow anywhere. My husband had developed it on his upper cheek years ago after my Grandfather. He was very lucky because the doctor did a new procedure on him called Mohs surgery in his office. They cut him from the bottom of his chin to below his eye, like a hook shape. They would go deeper each time and look at it under a microscope for cancer cells. They had to go to his jawbone and cut through nerves. He couldn't blink nor smile for months. They had to pull the skin so tight across his cheek to cover the giant hole. He left their office with 45 staples and was cancer free, but has lost most of the feeling on that side of his face and has a hook shaped scar. I would rather my husband have a long scar as not to have him at all. So please, all you gals wear your sunscreen and please don't sunbathe or do the tanning beds. Get yourself a spray tan or faux tanning products. That's what I do. It's not worth risking your life just to be a little darker skinned for a few months. Take care all of you, Ginger.

I sun bath for small periods of time. I think there is nothing better than sitting outside with a book on a nice and sunny day by the pool. My skin doesn't burn very easily so I wear a low spf, usually 15 spf. I have only had three burns in my whole life.
