Here’s something you may not have thought about – “People who spend a lot of time driving their cars have a higher incidence of left-sided skin cancer”. That is according to Dr. Scott Fosko, professor and chairman of dermatology at St. Louis School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo.
I know I sure hadn’t and I wondered if others were as oblivious as me. I asked my friend Nancy, from Beauty411, (*who happens to drive a hella stupid amount of miles each week – 1200!?) if she puts SPF on her arm. She told me, “No, but I put it on my face”, which is good, but not enough when driving so much, apparently. Even celebrity esthetician, Renée Rouleau, has tweeted about it (*she also rec’s wearing sunscreen when you’re in an airplane).
Okay, so that got me thinking that maybe my pale skin and I need some help. Problem is, it’s hard enough to get me to remember to put it on my face in the mornings, let alone on my arm while I am trying to get to my morning Rt. 44 Sweet Tea. Luckily, I was able to try something that was small enough to just throw in my console and could spray on when I am in the car: Kinesys Sunscreen. This little 1oz SPF30 bottle is great to keep handy for quick shots of protection. The one I have has a Light Mango scent, which is really mild, but they also offer an Unscented version, too.
You can get the 1oz bottle for $6.99 and the larger 4oz size for $18.99. Since it dries so quickly and doesn’t need to be rubbed in due to the microspray, it’s great for sports players, as it doesn’t effect their grip, so you can find it locally at your more specific sports stores.
