Baby it's Hot Outside!


Temps here in Tucson nearing 100 today. Yowza! With that kind of blistering heat the potential for sun burn and long term sun damage is strong.

Remember to apply sunscreen before going outside. I am loving the spray on sunscreens available now. A long way from the thick, white, zinc oxide based goop I had to smear, or attempt to smear (because it really didn't move or spread very well...just kind of sat there on your skin, all thick and goopy) on myself as a kid.
It is really easy to spay on squirmy kids just before swimming or sports and it is lightweight and non greasy.
Because I'm of a 'certain age' I spray the backs of my hands and neck/chest religiously and spray some on my fingertips which I then apply to my ears.... tops, inside and lobes.Nobody wants wrinkly ear lobes! Go apply some sun screen right now! Do it!                                

                                                       Because........
                                                                        OUCH....THAT HURTS!!!

Remember your hats and sunglasses too! Have a safe, happy, sunburn free summer people!
