I swore this year I wasn't going to get tan lines, yet I just noticed I have a white stripe where my watch usually is, which means I've put myself squarely in harm's way (skin cancer, wrinkles). There are a ton of sunscreens that are built into body moisturizers and don't smell weird, feel sticky, or cost a lot — and fake tans that look great (so really, there aren't any excuses left). I'll use them if you will. Deal?
