I can't tell you what a relief it was when I realized I just needed some sun. I've spent hundreds of dollars over the years for this or that cream or supplement, and none of it ever
worked. I can get plenty of sun in the summer, but winters here in WI are a bit lacking in any serious sunshine. From now on I plan to buy a certain amount of tanning sessions each winter so that I can go in once a week for 10 minutes or so. I'm hoping that will keep my skin issues at bay. I'm also thinking of trying out what's called Red Light Therapy. The tanning salon I go has a RLT bed, but I need to do more research on it because I'm not sure if it's just another gimmick, or if it really does benefit the skin.
Yes, exactly this. All of the above is why I avoid sunscreen. I think it's a dangerous, money-making racket.
