First you have to understand that when I was growing up, I wore sunscreen more than anyone else I know. With the exception of my sister. My mother is a redhead and made sure we had sunscreen on for all the major events including field day, outdoor swimming, water parks and days at the lake. All things involving water since burns during watery events are always worse. But I didn't necessarily wear sunscreen everyday. No one did really. And considering how often I wore sunscreen and how I never went tanning or used baby oil in the sun to get tan (oh my goodness, I would have burned so badly I would have never recovered) I honestly thought that my sun damage would be minimal.
I was wrong. So very, very wrong.
I'll let the pictures do the talking.....
Here I am, getting my face scanned....
There was one highlight though. It compares your state of wrinkles to the "ideal" state of wrinkles of other women your age.
Thank you sunscreen for protecting me from more wrinkles.
After seeing this, I decided to do the skin lightening procedure which helps to undo the sun damage. I'm nervous. This year has been the unintended year of expanding my comfort zone. And boy, will this expand my comfort zone. In a big way. But at least we're all in this together.
