Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, when we all get naked and head outdoors, sunblock makers have issued new self-serving guidelines. Here’s a comparison of former vs. new standards for protecting yourself from virulent, poisonous sunshine.
Then: one shotglass full of sunblock
Then: every 4 hours
Now: every 4 minutes
Then: exposed skin
Now: exposed skin, covered skin, scalp beneath hair, underside of foot soles
Then: whenever you’re outdoors between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Now: 24/7, except when you’re in the shower
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
