    That Bad Old Sun! ! !

    Much of my work for many years was doing field studies out in Africa's blistering heat. Sunscreens were not yet available and I did all I could to cover my arms and wear a hat. I even wore two pairs of sunglasses to protect my eyes from the glare of the paper and used green paper...

    Skin Cancer, My Story.

    I was diagnosed with skin cancer a month ago. I've never been one to spend time in the sun, and living in the UK I rarely get the opportunity! I had an op to remove my basal cell carcinoma two weeks ago. It has left me with an 'interesting' scar on my right forearm. My ever...

    It's A Must!

    I keep a can of Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunblock near my front door so that I remember to give my face a good spraying every time I leave the house. I have my dad's sensitive skin- it's pale, never tans, and burns quickly! If I don't use sunblock daily, my skin gets...
