Did you know suffering with one or more blistering sunburns in childhood or adolescence more than doubles your chances of developing melanoma? That’s kinda scary, huh? Here in South Florida the sun seems like it is magnified. When I was growing up, my mother brought me to the beach on an almost daily basis. My skin as an adult now shows the signs of this sun exposure.
Raise your hand if you’ve paid for your lack of sun protection? I’m over here waving mine. I’ve made my share of skin protection mistakes. If you’re around my age, then you remember the days when tanning beds were all the rage. I went as far as having a membership to a tanning bed facility. If only I utilized my gym membership as often as my tanning bed membership, I might have once had a 6 pack.
Now as an educated adult, I spend my time in my dermatologist office scanning over my body to ensure one of my freckles or moles isn’t camouflaging itself. I have technically been lucky, in the sense that anything that has been discovered as potentially dangerous has been removed before becoming ominous.
