Skin School: To All the Sun Worshipers

I started school at the start of the summer. The time where those who have pale skin have their chance to get a darker skin tone for a few months. Granted, you can tan in a tanning salon, but you know what I mean.

I learned really quick at school that it would not be a good idea to get a lot of sun exposure because of all the treatments I would be getting and practicing such as facials and waxing. If you have sunburn or even sun exposure at least 24 hours from that treatment, you cannot get certain treatments done. This puts all the students including myself at a disadvantage as far as opportunities for practicing go. So, I said to myself "Okay I will be good and wear SPF and make sure I do not get a sunburn." Of course, part of me was sad because I like how I look tan. This is the ONLY reason I am glad that it was such a hot summer and I did not really want to be outside. No outside, no sun exposure. Sounds depressing, but at least I was not tempted to tan.

Then the real education began. As time has gone on, I have learned how completely important SPF is, and how damaging the sun really is to your skin. I am not going to sit here and claim to know everything about all this. That is what research is for. 

My main reason for writing this post is so that I can share an important video with you. It is not new. Apparently, it is or was a very popular video. Anyways, it speaks for itself. I am not posting this to lecture, only to educate.

That is all I really got for today. You can go ahead and argue that anything or everything can cause cancer, so what is the big deal? This is a very easy cancer to get. and can be fatal.

Sorry about the lack luster post.  I am home sick today and do not have much energy. I just wanted to reach out to people about this.

Until next time. keep smiling because you are beautiful.
