I went to the dermatologist this afternoon, to have him deal with old sun damage. (Actinic keratoses, hard crusty spots across my cheeks and nose.) He said my previous treatments had been "not aggressive enough". He fixed that, with a spray can of frozen nitrogen.
Ow, ow, ow, OW!
I never used to use sunscreen. 'Way back when I was young, nobody did; we used suntan oil, hoping for a nice, deep tan. It never worked for me. I burned.
And then, when sunscreen was available, I still didn't use it, because . . . crickets. No reason, except laziness. Now I have blisters, and they hurt worse than the worst sunburn I ever got.
Moral of the story: Don't forget the sunscreen, people!
