Hawaii. Splendid, isn’t it?
There was a time when I would go to the beach every weekend and bask in the sun. Ugh. No wonder I have so many moles on my back. It’s a miracle I don’t have skin cancer, considering how many times I got sunburned.
I haven’t been to the beach since November 2012 and don’t miss it. Been there, done that.
And this is another reason why I don’t do any gardening or yard work. The sun can be quite brutal here in Hawaii even in the morning and afternoon.
If you apply sunscreen lotion to your skin, it will disappear when you perspire and you will have to reapply it.
In fact, David has had two moles removed (from his back and his forearm), so he now swims indoors at the gym. We have also hired a company to do our yard work every month, because David doesn’t want to do it himself and risk getting skin cancer.
The best sunscreen is staying indoors. Once your skin develops moles, wrinkles, and even cancer, there is no turning back. You’re stuck with that skin forever.
Be kind to your skin, folks! It’s the only skin you’ve got.
