Money not burned when spent on sunscreen


Two weekends ago, I made sure my young daughters put on suntan lotion before they went swimming, but somehow, neglected to use any myself.

My back is still peeling apart -- no, make that falling apart.

So when a spokesperson for a major suntan lotion company sent me these tips for protecting oneself from harmful ultraviolet rays, I decided that that I couldn't keep these to myself, even though, really, protecting oneself from the sun doesn't have much to do with personal finance.

That said, if you get sun poisoning, you probably won't be able to work and earn money. Ah, there's my connection.

Anyway, maybe by passing on this wisdom, I might save someone else from having their skin look like a shriveled up tomato.

Here are the suggestions -- from Coppertone.
