Holy hell is it sunny in Arizona! The sunniest place in America (check out your state on there!) and I TOTALLY believe that. I’m sitting outside (under a shaded, solid awning out of the sun with a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses on, total psychopath) and there is not one single cloud in the sky. And that’s totally normal here. When I was at the derm the other day, I was just there today… I swear, I’m there all the damn time, but I LOVE it… not sure if they love my presence as much as I love them but who cares 😉 So anyways.. when I saw the derm a couple weeks ago, he told me that the left side of my face had more sun damage due to driving in the car and the damaging rays. TOTAL BUZZKILL! Like omfg… I wear sunscreen, I own & wear more hats than one human can imagine (ah I just ordered a new one today from Coolibar), I’m rarely in the car, well maybe an hour a day, yet my skin is apparently damaged more so on the left than the right. I was so disappointed! And I’m sure we all know the story of the truck driver who has severe aging to the left side of his face from driving in a big rig all his life, well 28 years to be exact!

It’s totally a REAL thing! So after I sobered up… going into the docs like ‘oh I totally got this, I have a skincare blog for criminy sakes’, I decided it was time to really protect myself from the beautiful yet harmful rays! And yes, Amazon totally saved the day! Are you guys as obsessed with Amazon as I am? The poor UPS guy in our neighborhood, always bringing us crap, who is super sweet btw.. had a nice chat with him when I was wearing a face mask the other day, coming back from the mailbox…. and surprisingly he didn’t judge my appearance… he said ‘I get it’! So I sat my ass down on the computer and searched high and low for a sun shade that was safe to drive with but blocked most of the dangerous UV rays from getting into the car!
