When you look at me now, you’d never guess that I was once a beach bunny. Suntan Oil SPF 4 was the only SPF product I used back then and I’d try to bake my skin till it is brown. I had the same fervor of trying to be as tanned as most would of looking fair and bright. Safe for a few sun spots, my skin’s still in pretty good condition thanks to the skin-brighteners and sunscreens I’ve been slathering on for the past 20 years. Fact: UV rays are damaging to the skin. You may not see it now but you will see it 10 years later. So be sure to arm yourself with a sunscreen everyday.
