Growing up in the 70's, usually I had a great sun tan. No sunscreen at all. I remember getting a base burn followed by baby oil.
Also I had blonde hair and blue eyes. So I was predisposed to have skin cancer. I've had surgery for skin cancer and I've had countless appointments with my dermatologist freezing off skin cancer issues just to be safe.
This week I had a check up, and they froze off a lot of concerning skin cancer issues. Only three stitches today! I thought I was bulletproof. Now sunscreen is my friend!
