Ok...so, this summer I'll be doing various things that put me in the sun a lot, like baseball games, and a trip to Texas . I'm not someone who generally does the tanning thing, due to the whole cancer thing...BUT...I've heard people talking about getting a base tan so they won't burn on vacation, and things like that. Now, I'm rather certain that I'm gonna end up burnt, even with sunblock use...especially since the Hotel Dombrowski that I'll be staying at in Texas has a pool. I want to hear your expert opinions...is it stupid getting the base tan? I know I've read that severe sunburns really heighten your risk of cancer down the road....and I would like to avoid that...which is why I'm asking this question...what do y'all think?
