THE BEAUTIFUL... BUT DANGEROUS SUN
The sun can be an enemy to your skin!
Use common sense and lots of sun screen, a hat to shade
your face, and cover up your body.
I loved the look of a nice tan with my summer
That was summer!
I am Norwegian and fair-haired.
But my skin tanned well...
so why not get all toasty in the sun.
A small discolored spot on my shoulder.
It didn't look like anything unusual
but my dermatologist freaked.
He biopsied it and several weeks later
I was back having a 2 hour excision.
This is a photo of the 3 inch incision on my shoulder.
I'm not vain about scars on my body.
This one especially!
It's a good reminder to keep my skin out of the sun.
For my daughter's wedding I'll get a spray tan at a salon.
Just to have a bit of color.
