Skin Cancer, It Can Happen to YOU!

Now that summer is here, it is important to apply sunscreen lotion when you are going out  and  exposure of the sun  can't be avoided.  We usually  have sun screen lotion at home because the kids love outdoors so much!  Photos below were taken the other day when we brought them to Starvaggi pool.
They were happy to meet another  kid they know from school.  They hung  out and swam together.

I am not fond of exposing myself under the sun. I don't like burning myself hehe.
Many white people like to expose to sunlight but many of us asian don't like.

THANKS FOR THE INFO.

Hey Hon, Do this really apply just for women? Don't it affect men? Because I know that you easily burn by the heat of the sun...

Joops said...

Good for you TAEX, you're not prone to skin cancer then!

Joops said...

Hi iluvphils2, yeah a lot of asian women really don't like exposing their skin in the sun which is good, american women on the other side is the contrary hehehe..

Joops said...

You're welcome Rogue!

^_^ Skin cancer overpowered it already... because of the famous tanning system..

Joops said...

I can understand you Weng, my wife is the same hehehe..

Joops said...

It does Hon, but since men aren't as beauy conscious as women, that's why they're the most prone to it.. iloveu!

Malou said...

Visiting your home tonight..have a great day to all ;-)

dhemz said...

good to know...visit here! BTW, how much is the pumpkin there in KOREA? I would prefer buying a pumpkin in the Commissary than in the patch...we paid 15 bucks for 2 big pumpkins and 3 li'l ones...at the commissary each pumpkin is 2.50 bucks..see the difference..just a rip off...:)

Joops said...

Thanks for dropping by Malou!

Joops said...

Hi Dhemz, there's no other way to buy pumpkin here but in the commisary but it is extremely high because we're overseas.. The big pumpkin here cost 75 bucks, imagine that! Rose said, forget about decorating hehehe..

Hi Joops,
I asked my wife to read your post. She is one of many women who not care about skin's care. She likes being natural and go anywhere freely.
Greetings to your family.

Tikno & family
