I mentioned in my last post that the new medicine I'm taking causes sun sensitivity. As I'm pretty sensitive to the sun on my own, I started to worry that with help I would turn into a pile of ashes in 30 seconds outside. So this weekend, I took matters in my own hands, and waged war against the sun and its damaging rays.
I use this lotion every day:
It has spf 15 in it, which is great for the winter, but I'm thinking I need more protection than that for the summer.
I then realized that my makeup also has spf 15 in it:
And while both of these, especially when used together, are great for a normal person, I felt like I needed more protection. Way, way more protection.
I headed directly to Target where, after scanning the face lotions, I was feeling a little discouraged. Most had spf 15 in them and none seemed to provide more than that. Are the pale girls of the world not supposed to go outside? Do we have to hide in the shadows and never enjoy the sun? That hardly seems fair.
But then I saw it, my lifesaver in a tube:
Spf 70. Hell yeah. I plan on using this religiously all summer and hope to make it to next fall as pale as I am now. Wish me luck.
