Every summer when I was in middle school, I would lather myself in half a bottle of tanning oil, and lay out on the dock at our cottage and BAKE myself in the sun! ahhh it was so so bad for my skin, and after doing some research on sun damage, I am terrified of stepping out into the sun without at least SPF 60 on! I already notice fine lines on my forehead, (they’re fine but there there!!) and it’s from my obsession with being tanned when I am younger! Even though I am only 17, I still want to take care of my skin while I am young, because my skin is at it’s peak and it’s only downhill form here haha. As well, since it’s the dead of winter in BC, it is rare to see the sun. I still want a bit of a glow, so self-tanning has been my go-to solution these last few weeks!
