I’ve really bought into the daily sunscreen routinue for my face, neck and hands, but I just can’t deal with my ghostly white legs. In past years I would find the nearest park bench and toast my legs for a little natural color. Now that I know about risks for melanoma, skin cancer and that the sun makes my legs wrinkled and baggy, I’m always looking for a safe, affordable and easy solution.
