What are your tips and tricks??? Here's my list so far (after all, spring break is only 2 or 3 weeks away!!!):

SPF 30 neutrogena sunblock with titanium oxides!!! The physical barrier should be more protective.

max cover concealer from aromaleigh where the sunblock can't go-- eyelids, for example.

mega strength sunglasses, of course. :)

Ok, I'm actually thinking about getting a wet/diving suit like this one:

It might also be handy for splashing in the colder water, especially with gloves, for those with raynauds. :)

Any other handy tips before hitting the beach this summer?

Well Rachel, - You won't be short of young men offering you lessons if you appear in one of those 'wet suit thingies' !! - I am tempted to buy one myself !!

Thankfully, I have never had any problems in the sun - I have dark hair and skin and just love to feel the sun on my body. - Unfortunately, my skin is just so inflamed, flakey, and ugly that I can't expose it when others are around so have to remain covered.

The good thing is, I recently saw the GP who gave me some different creams to use and the improvement is SO incredible that I feel I just 'may' be able to uncover at least my arms this summer (If summer ever comes!!!!!!!)

One step at a time!!

Sort of Psoriasis for about 20 years, although it seems it may well have been Discoid Lupus all the time??

Nasty ugly just the same!!!!!!!!!
