Just for starters, I’m not sunburnt. But after years of letting the sun beat down on my body and leaving me painfully red, I’ve really started to embrace the lesson of applying sunscreen.
I spent a considerable amount of time outside yesterday. It was hot. It was humid. For me, it was unbearable. I’m not a fan of the heat. No, not at all. Before I learned my lesson, I would have spent the day outside sans SPF. So far this year, I haven’t had to endure the pain of sunburn. Knock on wood.
There’s another lesson I have to learn: wearing gloves. If you’re going to do a lot of shoveling, wear gloves. Before my SPF lesson, I may have gotten a blister or two from a bad sunburn. Now, I have blisters from some heavy lifting. I guess it’s a lot of living and learning.
Learn from my lesson and skip the pain, wear sunscreen and gloves, too!
