It would be nice if they made a self tanner that really worked without streaking and making your elbows and heels look rusty, especially for you now that you are living in Hawaii.
I've been to Oahu a couple of times and I don't think there is a place any more beautiful than the North Shore. I've been to Maui once and it was also beautiful, but if I ever went back again, it would be to the North Shore of Oahu.
But I just look at the ocean these days. I am also a blonde with blue eyes and after having a squamous cell and a melanoma, I just go around lily white. Those were both on my leg. I had another one removed a few years ago which turned out to be pre-cancerous and it was on my chest, just below my neck. That was a real wake up call because I thought wow, that's getting pretty close to my face. I was excited about the pre-cancerous path report though.
I did just by chance find a self tanner a Walgreen summer before last that I just used on my legs so I could wear sandals to work. It actually did a good job. I didn't try it all over my body. I have just recently moved, when I come across it, I will let you know the name of it. It wouldn't hurt to give it a try. I know you must hate to be the only one on the island without a tan.
But, please take care of yourself. You know fair skinned people like us are easy targets for skin cancers. I am one of the lucky ones, I am over ten years out on my melanoma. Keep using that sun screen. Keep us posted.
You are so lucky to be living in Hawaii!
