I feel pretty lucky to have an olive complexion also, and I tan easily.
I enjoy getting sun and a bit darker as I look and feel better. I don't
go overboard but I love my tan and I try to sit out at least a few
minutes daily just to get some Vit D. In the last few years I start my
tan in January with a cruise to someplace warm, then just keep at it
through the rest of the year. Since I'm often mistaken for being about
10-15 years younger than I am, apparently I've not overdone it and don't
I think people with darker complexions may not get the sun damage
quite as easily. Also, the only sunblock we use is mineral sunblock.
And only if we are going to be in direct sun all day. Most people don't
realize that there is a risk of skin cancer from the modern sunscreens
and that it is for the more dangerous form of it. I haven't read the
references in a while, so people will have to look it up themselves.
There are plenty of zinc based sunblocks out there, though, for those
who want sun/uv protection. We try to get at least 20 minutes a day of
sun for the Vit. D and just elevating our moods.
You all are very lucky! I am fair with blue eyes and I burn very easily:( I stay out of the sun.
