    Hi guys. I feel we should seek shade instead of seeking the sun. I read up about some problem that might arise due to too much exposure to the sun

    The first ounce of prevention from the sun rays are wearing a wide brimmed hat, long sleeved shirt and is much more safe and no dangers from chemical-laden sunblock! :)

    The best stuff I’ve ever tried is Sun Putty…they have several products that are natural, concentrated and effective… from sunscreen to skincare to acne help, I find their products to be full of great, natural ingredients and without any ineffective filler ingredients.

    My skin has never looked better. Out in the winter cold and wind and no red, chaffed skin…great on hands and face for running outside in the winter….amazingly, no reddened or windburned skin…

    You can spend thousands of dollars on unnecessary courses, or you can get the best prepbooks, study guides, textbooks, books, strategies from the experts, all for a fraction of the cost. Use your study time effectively.
