National Skin Self-Examination Day

Posted by Brittany

Chris and I both have a good number of moles, and I even had a suspicious looking one removed from my hairline a couple of years ago, but we are happy to report that, as of right now, everything looks alright. I do need to make an appointment with my dermatologist to take a look at some chemical burns that won’t seem to heal (I got a few small but persistent burns while stripping furniture last fall), and I’ll probably have a professional skin screening at that time. Until then, I’ve made a promise to myself to be more vigilant in my sunscreen efforts — I’m not very outdoorsy, but when I do venture out I usually wear SPF 60 and I never lay out with the intent to get a tan. In spite of these preventative measures, I’m not very good about re-applying sunscreen every couple of hours and this a habit I want — and need — to change.

Tomorrow we’re prepared to be spooked — it’s Paranormal Day!
