Even when the sun don't shine...

you can still get sunburnt.

I've been learning this the hard way lately. We're still swimming outside (and yes, I do know that it's mid-October), and I'm in the early afternoon practice, meaning that I'm outside every single day from roughly 2 - 4:30.

Remember how every bottle of sunscreen says to be careful about being outside from 10 - 4? Yeah...

Anywho, I've finally figured out how to keep myself from getting fried every single day.


After I wash my face in the morning, I put on Cetaphil Moisturizer with SPF 30 in it. This is a godsend. I'm becoming lazier and lazier with dressing up for class (sorry Mom) and this cuts out another step, meaning I'm more likely to actually do it.

Thankfully, I'm not the only pale person on the team. Many of my teammates are also prone to sunburns, so a bottle of spray sunscreen is usually floating around somewhere. That step is crucial! I still have a rockin' one- piece tan, but hopefully this will keep me from getting burnt and from some awful consequences down the road.

For my face, the only sunscreen that won't make me break out is Blue Lizard's. However, it's pretty expensive (about $25 for a bottle) for a broke college kid, and it can be tough to find. A good alternative, and what's currently in my locker, is Neutrogena's Sensitive Skin Sunscreen. It leaves me with a white sheen to my face, but I'm swimming so I look ugly anyways. Sports are pretty.

Basically, moral of this post - WEAR YOUR SUNSCREEN EVEN THOUGH IT'S COLD.

Love you too Mom!
