dear 16 year old you...

This is my new cause!

I have red hair and fair skin, and a slight family history of such skin things.
In the spring time I wear sunscreen everyday (at least on my face)
And in the summer, I sure do spend the time to get a good coat, and reapply, and reapply etc.

But just because you aren't red haired and fair skinned doesn't mean you're free to sit in the sun!
So so so many girls my age go tanning and it's such a shame!
(because it rarely looks good, and its so awful for you!)

Therefore, I am hoping to spread the word a little more this month, and for the rest of the months of the year. Tanning is not necessary and not harmless!

Tell the sixteen year olds in your life, and if you are sixteen heed the warnings!
