When I was in college, I had a really bad habit. No, not keg beer or sleeping through classes — my senior year, I had the terrible, terrible habit of visiting tanning booths. At the time, I thought it looks sooooo great to be really tan (and have blonde hair, but that’s a whole separate set of mistakes, and I’m not ready to go there on the internet yet).
In the years since, I’ve realized what a giant mistake it was to *ever* set foot in one of those tanning salons. The idea that I once paid money to have concentrated sun damage to my skin is absolutely horrifying to me now — and I’ve spent a good period of time since then making sure that I do everything I can to protect my skin. I still use sunless tanner here and there, but I literally never step outside my apartment with less than SPF 15.
So I loved the idea of doing a giveaway with Coppertone — because with Memorial Day just around the corner, it’s not a bad reminder to slather on the sunscreen! So *five* lucky winners will receive two bottles of Coppertone Sport — sweatproof, waterproof, SPF 50 to keep you safe and sunburn-free for the summer months! To enter, you can do one of two things. Either post a comment below, or follow me on Twitter here! And yes, that means you can enter twice!
Honestly, if you’re not following me on Twitter already, you’re missing basically half this blog, so go do it! Entries will close on Thursday, May 20th, and I’ll choose five winners randomly! I’m proud to say I’ve changed my errant ways — Coppertone sent me some sunscreen as well, and I’ve been using it religiously! I’ve turned into such a good example.
