  • you'll be fine as long as you don't burn. Burning the skin iw when you really begin to multiply the chances of skin cancer. We don't use sun screen in my family & no one has ever ended up with skin cancer & all have aged pretty darn good. Studies have proven that %90 of sun blocks actually help cause skin cancer anyway, so maybe it's better off you don't use sun screen. Google it & find sunscreens that don't have cancer causing chemicals in it. Sunblock also blocks vitamin D absorbtion, and vitamin D is the #1 free radical killer in the skin, helping keep skin cancer at bay.

  • I did when I was a teen. So stupid. I am a fair redhead and am terrified I will end up with skin cancer because of my poor choices.

  • Never intentionally. I run out of the house without it on sometimes, but I think I learned my lesson this year because I got burned pretty bad in the car. That's the only time I have more than 2 minutes of sun exposure-- when I'm driving.
