do you use sunscreen?

I am the only person I know who is trying to protect my skin and staying out of tanning beds and the sun and using sunscreen regularly. My husband makes fun of my whiteness and calls me the sunscreen nazi lol. My mother's skin has a lot of sun damage and it really ages her and I do not want to look like that! Just wondering if you tan a lot or stay out of the sun also.

  • No cancer in my fam. We do put sunscreen on the kids and ourselves if we're going to be out for long. If it's just for recess, I don't unless I know it's a hot day but we live in the clouds.

  • I have worked at a tanning salon since I was 15 and I've never been so pale before in my life! It's driving me crazy. But for some reason, now that I'm pregnant I am burning so easily in the sun. Even through my clothing. So I've been hitting up the sunscreen. I hate to burn... it's just a miserable feeling!! And my children will for sure never go out without sunscreen!
