What’s missing?? The elusive 15!
Incredibly difficult to find SPF 15 that wasn’t Hawaiian Coconut or 15 in a spray form, which seems a total waste to me – a gust of wind comes up and the spray ends up in the gin and tonic??? No thanks.
I found this one and only bottle of 15 at CVS, but only after exhausting many other destinations for sun tan lotion.
On my shopping loop, I saw one tube of Ban de Soleil SPF4, a product of my youth. We’d slather that orange cream and bake until we were bronze, you know, until we got that San Tropez tan.
Here I am in the ad. 🙂
I can remember needing a tan in a hurry for the prom or some other dance, we mixed iodine and baby oil… and literally fry, often adding a reflector to hasten the sear.
Oddly, I don’t have one friend today who has had skin cancer. My father had some melanoma removed from his face after years of being a sailor but nothing that was considered life-altering. No one else, and we ALL fried ourselves – all of us.
I do worry that the high number SPF creams block the benefits of Vitamin D to the skin and body. I happen to think D is critical to the overall health of the body so I’m willing to get a good dose of sun the next twelve days, without being stupid, but also, not coming home to hear someone say When are you going on vacation! It is, after-all, ALL ABOUT THE TAN!
