Investigation To Be Done Like Who's Been Wearing What With Who?

Hi there,

The funny thing about going to the beach- for me anyway- is that I always, always have to be shaded. No exceptions. I spend my beach days sitting underneath my mother's giant beach umbrella smeared with spf 30. The reason? I burn like crazy. I never used to be like this, in fact when I was a kid, I used to get a really awesome golden like tan during the summer, despite growing up with a sunblock obsessed father. It wasn't until I turned sixteen that I started to burn. I spent that summer working on one of my brother's movie sets and got the most horrendous sunburn ever and ever since, if I'm in the sun for longer than 20 minutes without protection, my skin turns bright pink. It sucks. I feel like I must have really transparent skin too, when I work out (not that it happens often) or even exert myself too hard, my cheeks turn fuchsia. It's ridiculous. I used to go to the gym often while I was in university and I always felt like people were staring at me and I could never figure it out until one day I passed a mirror mid work out and realized that my face looked like a tomato. My veins are also quite vibrant through my skin. Strange, I know. I blame my gran, she's super pale too.
Anyway, the reason behind this little tirade is that I was just down at the beach with my family (who are still there as we speak) and my beautiful mocha skinned niece and nephew were making me so envious of their tans. Anyhoo...
I just popped up to the house to do a little update on this here blog. So... here it is.
