So I've been on the 811 path for 7 months and have been lavishing myself in sunlight all summer long...well, as much as I can get (maybe 4-5 hours/week of direct exposure) and usually as naked as I can be! I try to go out between 9am to 11am and/or 3pm to 5pm and stay out as long as is comfortable (I never allow myself to get overheated, sweat, or feel "burned"). I have a healthy glow and feel much more balanced from the great hormonal benefits of sunshine.
The reason I'm posting....
I don't want to damage my skin! I know sunshine is natural and we're designed for it, etc...but I also know we live in a very chemical world and the Ozone isn't want it used to be and I'm in New Zealand (such strong sun!) and I got a mole (does anyone know what the true "meaning" of a mole is? Why, Mole? WHY??) and I'm a bit pedantic about getting wrinkles...
Back in the day I was an SPF 50+ girl and UVA/B sunnies, so going sans sunscreen and sunglasses is a big deal for me! But I want to do the right thing for my body/health, no matter what that may be.
Do you highly intelligent and informed folk know of any exceptional reading material or have within the catacombs of personal knowledge any facts of figures which will calm my brain-washed (Slip, Slop, Slap, and Wrap!) mind??
I tried asking someone at the Cancer Society, but they were too busy hosting a fund-raising Sausage Sizzle...you know, to perpetuate cancer awareness by growing it!
