Sun Tanning
Living in Florida, taking multiple medications, having fair skin and a family history of skin cancer all have me using sun block and trying to stay out of the sun as much as I can. Add to that having a diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis, which heat can exacerbate, you’ll usually find me with with a big straw hat, going into and out of air conditioned cars, stores, homes, etc.

I’ve been using a spray sunscreen so it saves some time with applying it. Then I have a cream that I use on my face. I already have Rosacea so I really have to be careful getting any sun on my face. I look like I don’t live in Florida being so pale but that’s what I have to do.

I’m happy to be over getting pimples on top of the other skin problems I have. I remember being a young woman in my teens and twenties and not only having acne on my face but on my neck and upper back. That was much worse than being pale. I found a great dermatologist though who helped me with the best acne treatment for me. It took some time but soon I was acne free.

Some people view not having a tan as a missing out on a beauty routine but I think that I’d rather not worry about skin cancer than try to look good.
