Sometimes I can be a brat about paying for certain things.
It’s expensive y’all!
I’m always struck by the price of it. I mean, you can easily get a tube for under $10…but on a family of 4 it doesn’t go that far.
Regardless, it’s necessary. 3 out of 4 of us burn very easily. My son and I freckle and turn into lobsters (thankfully, he’s never gotten more than a few splotchy red spots since we always coat him up really well with sunscreen). My husband can get pretty red as well.
My daughter on the other hand just gets dark. Then darker. Then darker.
I find myself wondering if she needs sunscreen sometimes.
Then I hit myself in the head because OF COURSE SHE DOES. We all do.
That’s why when I think about how annoyed I get at having to pay for sunscreen, I also have to think about the people that aren’t just annoyed…the people that simply can’t afford it at all.
I’m sure you’ve heard that one bad sunburn can double a child’s odds of developing skin cancer later in life.
How awful to put that burden on a child because you can’t afford sunscreen for them now 🙁
Neutrogena is doing something about it this summer.
