Last month’s poll
In our last poll, we discussed our particular exercise styles. With 40 total voters, 55% prefer to exercise solo, 5% like exercising in group situations the best, 37.5% like a combination of exercising by themselves and with others, and 2.5% don’t exercise. Glad to see that only 1 in 40 poll participants shun exercise! It was interesting to find out that the majority of people like exercising alone over any other form of exercise. I would love to know how many of those people are runners – it has always seemed to me that runners do best when they exercise alone, but that is simply an observation of some of the runners that I know. Please feel free to enlighten me: runners, do you prefer to exercise solo?
This month’s poll
The warm weather beckons us to the great outdoors, but I think that there are many of us who do not take care of our skin the way we ought to. With the sun beating down it is easy to get a sunburn. Even with cloud cover, it is possible to get sunburned. That is why sunscreen is good to wear to protect our skin from the U.V. rays.
However, recent research suggests that toxic chemicals in sunscreen may actually be a contributing factor to health problems such as cancer. There is so much conflicting information flying around that, once again, consumers are left flummoxed – myself included.
The facial moisturizer I use daily includes an SPF of 15 in it, which protects my face from being burned; other than that, I don’t usually wear sunscreen. This is probably inadvisable, especially considering that having moles increases my risk of skin cancer. If/when I burn from being out in the sun for too long, I moisturize my skin like crazy with products enhanced with vitamin E and aloe vera, and it helps an enormous amount.
Please answer the poll and expand on your answer in the comments section below!
I am currently thinking that finding some kind of natural sunscreen product would be the best route to take to achieve the middle ground that we so often strive for. Does anyone have suggestions for good products? Why do you (or do you not) wear sunscreen? Do you think sunscreen is a good product to use in the summer or do you prefer to let the sun do its work?
