Another alternative to tanning is the moiturizers with self tanners in them and I think Jergensens and Neutrogena make them, I have used them in the past and they really work if you are fair skinned! Especially if you have a special event coming up and you don't want to risk the tan in a bottle (fearing turing orange) these are a great alternative.
Yally, why don't you color your hair? are you not supposed to while on MTX? I have now found some grey (just enough to start flipping out about it) and had color for the first time yesterday, close to my natural color. Is this something you are not supposed to do? Sheesh please say its okay to color hair whilie on MTX.
My daughter is 11, and I'm already harping on her about skin and sunscreen, she thinks I'm insane It's not only for when you go swimming, I tell her.
