Ever since I found out that Coloradoans are at an increased risk of skin cancer I’ve been on this kick to learn everything I can about skin care and sunscreen. Before we moved out here, Keegan’s friend Norma loaded us up with skin care products. I asked what the deal was and that’s when I learned about the risk, although our neighbors to the west (Utah) are more exposed to direct sun than we are.

Nonetheless, I’m sharing several links related to skin care including ways to protect yourself against harmful rays. The SYSK podcast relayed the most useful information, such as debunking the myth of the base tan and distinguishing between UVA and UVB rays. In addition, the history of sunscreen was honestly pretty interesting to me…almost as interesting as the episode on toilet paper LOL. Click the links below to learn more skin care.
