Come on, baby boomers. You know who I'm talking to! We "laid out" with tiny bikinis and baby oil to magnify the effects of the sun. We lived in a world where "tan" was still a synonym for "healthy-looking," and we did a lot of damage to our skin along the way.
Before the dangers of suntanning were well-known, many of us spent our summers in the sun, sunscreen-free. We'd spend days at the pool or the lake, and by the end of the summers our moms couldn't tell if we were really that tan, or just plain covered with dirt.
Now that I'm older, I haven't tanned for 20 years, and I try to wear sunscreen whenever we're outdoors or at the beach or the lake. But I still worry about the damage I caused to my skin back then. I see rows and rows of lotions and moisturizers on the market now for reversing sun damage, and was just wondering if anyone has had results they would like to share?
