Wednesday Quick Tip

Sorry I don't have time for a proper post today. It's been a very long day at work. Is it still really only Wednesday?

This is just a quick tip: when applying sunblock (because you ARE using a daily sunblock, right?!) don't forget your neck, your ears, your chest, and your hands. Those annoying "liver spots" on your hands? They have nothing to do with your liver and everything to do with sun damage. It's easy to forget these areas, and they need just as much protection as your face.

Oh, and if you have any bald men in your life, remind them to apply sunblock to the top of their head. How often do you see bald men with sunburned scalps in the summer? Quite frequently--a sad fact since more men are diagnosed with (and die from) melanoma than women.

I'll be back tomorrow with a brand new Beauty Product of the Week. Until then, be sure to enter my Sun Safety Kit giveaway!

Thats good advice. I went to Sea World once and my ears got so burnt that they were blistered and oozing puss for for a week.
