Lovely ladies and gents (LOML, Dad, Glen... you know who you are, fellas*)
I'll cut to the chase this week. I just want to know your answers to two personal hygiene questions and then I'll be on my way. Don't fret, not tooooo personal.
1. Do you really put sunscreen on yourself / your children every single day?
Because I don't. I kid myself that I have issues with the chemical content on young skin (and possibly I do) but the real reason is that I hate the greasy, sticky, smelly feeling it gives you all day. It's like walking around with a latex glove plastered to your face.
Plus I'm desperately lazy.
I just tell the tsunamis to stay out of the sun as much as possible, to cover up and to wear their hats. I do the same for me. I confess I may have smirked just a little bit when I read about Aussie kids with Vitamin D deficiency. There'll be none of that around here, thank you very much.**
2. Do you really moisturise top to toe every day?
Because I don't. See 'desperately lazy' above. I do my face, neck and décolletage (see, gone all fancy pants on you there...) every night, but I just couldn't be arsed (don't worry, it didn't last) to do the full body thing. Every week or so I feel guilty and slather myself in the stuff for days in a row and then I slacken off again. Skin seems okay.
So, I guess I really want to know if you take better care of yourself than I do of me...
'Til next time
