It's beautiful out.
By beautiful I mean it's 20 some-odd degrees, the wind has died down, and there isn't a cloud in the sky. I should be outside basking in the sun and gardening!
Except, ummm, I'm already burned.... yeah...
I should have paid attention earlier in the week when The Boy said it looked like I had gotten some sun. I assumed it was because I had just gotten out of the shower that my skin was flushed, so I didn't think anything of it. Bad move. I didn't spend a tonne of time outside during my yard sale Saturday, but I did spend a little bit. Just enough to burn my nose, and lightly burn my cheeks. That was unexpected, though upon some reflection it occurred to me that the acne medications I've been on for the last 6 months are known to make the skin photosensitive. Very photo sensitive, apparently.
I'm going to need some sunscreen.
This wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't for the fact that every sunscreen I've ever tried has made me break out.
I believe that right there falls under the category of irony.
But, it is what it is. It's only mid spring and I've already been burned from moderate sun exposure. This summer I'm supposed to do a 200 km bike ride, spend lots of time out at The Boy's lake lot with his friends on a boat, and spend some time on the ocean with the family. There is no way I'm going to be able to do that without sunscreen.
So, today I'm going to drop off some of the yard sale left overs at the goodwill donation center, then head down to the mall to gather sunscreen samples to try. That and a sample of some of the Argan Oil that FB says has been working for her skin.
I'm a Sephora V.I.B. (until the end of this year, because I highly doubt I'll spend enough this year to get that status again next year), and they have a "free makeover" promotion this month. I doubt there will be many people there on a Monday afternoon, so I'm going to book myself one today. I could use a little perk up, and free is right in my price range right now.
All you lovely ladies (and gents) with sensitive skin: What kind of sunscreen do you use?
