UV rays are part of how cataracts are formed so good quality sunglasses should be worn as well as sunscreen. Our ancestors were wise to use a parasol when they went outdoors. Sunglasses and sunscreen should be considered part of basic health care.

I heard that anything over SPF 30 was just overkill. Izzat true? I could ask the Sound Off folks, I guess, but swag might pitch a hissy.

Remember kids, "Pass out on a porch, not a lawn." Don't let that morning sun ravage the beauty of your skin.

One time I dreamed I was drowning. Turned out to be the sprinkler head popped up next to my face.

It is better to cover up with clothing and a hat, but I try to get the exposed areas with some SPF100 if I know I will be outside a long time.

I'm going to let that softball so on past me.

However, G, wear sunscreen.

Found a piece of dark glass for a welder's helmet. A little too late for the eclipse we just had, but I might be able to watch Venus transit the sun in a few weeks.

Indyan never wears sunscreen and He's never gotten burned or even a little red. No melanoma in His family either. We're gonna make a stop at White Sands on our honeymoon so He can visit some ancestors and lay out and get baked. Me, I'll be under the umbrella.

Only if someone is looking. I took my shirt off yesterday and stampeded the entire herd. The turkeys could give a damn, there is love in the air.

I use an oral sunscreen. It takes about three days to become effective, but it doesn't smell and isn't greasy.

I need sunscreen when operating a microwave.

Only if I'm purposefully in the sun on vacation. Since that won't be happening anytime soon, I'm pretty pasty. And I don't have my running legs back enough to be outside running for long enough to need it. I probably should use it more often. I'm nearing 40 and probably don't wanna wreck my face. Great. Now I have to go buy some sunscreen. Bah.

How effective is sun screen?

Maybe wearing summer weight long pants and long sleeve shirts is more effective? Seems we see a lot of male and female residents from the hotter oil rich regions keeping their bodies covered/protected in this fashion.

What do we know?

I wear a cover. But before I am on or near water I do close my eyes, purse my lips and exhale.

The older I get, the more I use. Oh, to languish in the garrish sun, only to be fried like a corn dog. Especially at certain fishing events. I gots me some SPF 237.
