Spots on My Face

I got a facial today. I know, it's totally decadent, but it's one of those things I do to treat myself. A facial is a massage and a cleaning all in one. When you're all done, you feel like all the horrible things that get caked on your skin and into your pores have been cleaned away leaving just your clean beautiful skin. And a good facial will make you feel incredibly refreshed.

I went to a new aesthetician (long and boring story). And new aestheticians like to take a look at your skin first. She commented on the normal things like my clogged areas and my dry areas. These things I already knew. But she also commented on the fact that I had a bit of skin discoloration. Now, I knew that I had some sun spots. I failed to wear strong enough sun block when I moved to Florida. I mean, how was I to know that Florida has the worst UV rating ever? So it was a little too late for me to get rid of the new spots, which I had been calling freckles, but they really aren't. So I"ve been wearing SPF30 every day. I don't miss a single day. Even on the days that I don't even go outside, I wear sun block. I can tan in the shade, so why can't I get skin damage inside my house? It's not as though my windows have UV protection. So I wear sunblock everyday on my face. I know I should wear them on my arms and legs too, but I can't find one that I can stand the smell of every day. I mean, BullFrog is great if you're going to be at the beach or the amusement park all day, but a little thick for everyday use. I feel like I"m covered in a layer of slime. The sun block for my face is pretty much odorless (but too expensive to spread all over the body).

So what do you guys use? Preferably SPF30 or higher. Thanks!
