Taking Care Of Yourself
Was I the only knucklehead who would lie in the sun smothered in baby oil?
Did any one else ENJOY peeling their skin?
Johnson & Johnson was my favorite brand of grease, and I'd go to Newport Beach and spend the day flipping myself around like I was a hunk of chicken being roasted on a spit.
SPF - pshaw! Coverups - only when it was cold. I never, ever, ever wore a hat.
To paraphrase Forest Gump, "I'm not a smart woman."
Still, my dermatologist has been giving me a clean bill for years, so I've been burying the misdeeds of my youth in the far corners of my brain. My skin damage is a natural aging thing, right? I tell myself this routinely.
Then I saw this video, which is extremely disturbing.
Don't get me wrong, it's beautifully shot, informative, and eerily mesmerizing. Check it out for yourself.
I bet you'll wear your sunscreen now!
