I grew up learning from my parents the dangers of not protecting your skin from the sun and even saw my dad take several trips to the dermatologist to get skin cancer removed from his body (this scared the crap out of me). My mom has worked in the dermatology/cosmetic surgery industry for many years and has taught us girls the disadvantages of premature aging (sun spots, wrinkles, discolored skin, sagging skin) which also solidified these strong beliefs of the importance of protecting your skin. I don’t want to look like I’m 50 when I’m 30!
I’ve always loved my white skin, it’s unique, it’s me, and I find I get more compliments about how I can pull off being fair. A couple years ago I went to Mexico with my family and one of the locals in the town we were in came up to me and said, “Senorita, you’re the whitest person I’ve ever seen.” Most people would find that to be offensive, but I took it as a great compliment. FYI, back in the early 1900’s being fair was a sign of beauty and wealth.
3. Moisturize and Protect. Normally I put on a lotion after shaving and then a sunscreen to protect. The Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance SPF 30 is two products in one because it’s a lotion and a sunscreen in one! It also has a delicious scent and a slight shimmer which gives you a nice glow. This sunscreen has UVA/UVB protection, is non-greasy, oil free, and is water resistant.
