With both parents having fair-complexions, it is no surprise that our children were blessed to be fair as well. As a kid, I remember putting on sunblock once before going swimming and then getting burnt. Once I became a mother, I read every book and magazine to learn about being a good mom. Sun care has always been an important issue to me. I won’t lie I used to work at a tanning place (mostly coffee/smoothie/herbal store) and with free tanning I felt I could use some color. It was so tricky with all the mixed information about whether tanning beds or natural sunlight were better. However, when people that I know in their 20s like me were being diagnosed with skin cancer from tanning beds, it is enough to make me think. Even though I did it sporadically, I didn’t want to take that risk. I stopped tanning and switched to sunless tanner if I needed a glow. With my first born mommy-mode set in, I always put sunblock (usually 50+) on my kids. The Boys don’t always love to sit still for it, but I have established this routine since they were little. No sunblock = No outside time
