Going Into and Out of the House for a Tan
I spent a long time doing yard work in the sizzling Summer sun with no sunblock last weekend.
I’m olive skinned so I don’t normally burn.
Instead I got an elegant golden tan on our arms. That made me feel like I wanted that tan all over. Now, I guess that they say sunbathing is not healthy plus excessive sun exposure can lead to skin cancer, but, I decided that just this once, I could get myself a golden tan. I had no wish to go to a tanning salon. Why pay for what the sun provides at no cost? So, I decided to put on our bathing suit plus hit the yard. I was out there for less than half an hour. It was the middle of Summer plus really hot, plus I had to go inside plus cool off in the a/c. I adjusted the thermostat to 76 degrees plus turned the ceiling fan in the family room on high. I spent all day to get this tan, even with sun tan excelerator. I would go outside for a little while, then go back inside to cool off in the a/c. Now I understand why my kids are always running in and out all Summer long, you really can’t do much outside, even if it’s not really exercise, before you really need to cool off in the a/c. It did literally take myself and others all day to get what I thought was a perfect golden tan, because of our need to keep coming in plus cooling off in the a/c, but I did eventually get what I wanted plus I am happy with it.
