Sunscreen is my friend. With out it I would be a lobster. 15 mins. in the sun with out sunscreen and I start to burn. I put on a SPF 50 every morning and spray down with a SPF 70 during the day if I go out a lot. My office mate call the spray T-shirt in a can. My father, all his brothers, and his dad all had minor sun cancers through there life. His mother had Myeloma in her 30’s and again in her 80’s. I have her thin pale as a ghost Irish completion.

Umm, I don’t think you have anything on me as far as being fair skinned! While in Colombia I called myself the world’s whitest man. The combo of German, Swiss and English has done me in. I could put on zinc oxide and still burn!
