May 13th 2010 · Tanning Oil Is Not Sunscreen!(4)

Tanning oil is not sunscreen (even if it contains SPF), and it does not offer sun protection! Tanning lotion is just as bad! I know most of you are sarcastically thinking “you’re kidding” but I am convinced a lot of people think an SPF 4 tanning oil is actually good for their skin. Last week I spent a few hours at a […]

March 29th 2010 · Are Self Tanners Bad For Skin?(9)

It’s a fact that excessive sun tanning is bad for your skin and health, but self tanners are the perfect, completely safe alternative, aren’t they? Maybe not.

March 12th 2008 · Self-Tanner Moisturizers(9)

Recently I’ve started using self-tanners daily on my face once again.

The Skin Cancer Foundation website has a cute new video about the history of tanning, and how sunscreen is a necessity for our health and beauty.

August 23rd 2007 · Anchorwoman Too Tan For TV(5)

So I watched that new Fox reality show “Anchorwoman” last night. I didn’t think it was the worst thing in the world, and I was mildly entertained. But I kept getting confused because the star of the show, Lauren Jones, looked like she was in her late 30s, and if the whole premise of the […]

I use the term sunscreen and sunblock interchangeably, since the distinction between the two words seems to be gone.
