Stuff 8

By J.J. Atwell

Hello again

It’s JJ again! Yes, there is more Stuff. I’m happy you continue to find this column thought-provoking. Let's get on with it today by talking about moisturizing and sunscreen.


I’m a big convert to moisturizing. Being older, my skin has been through a lot including long sessions tanning at the beach or on the golf course. I really never thought about taking care of it. I go to a dermatologist regularly and I don’t have any serious issues. But I’m getting more concerned about my skin.

So now I moisturize my face twice a day, once in the morning and before going to bed. I also moisturize my arms and legs after showering. I especially love the feeling of my freshly shaved and moisturized legs. So nice and smooth.  

But the constant reiteration of the importance of sunscreen is starting to penetrate. Hopefully my reminder here will encourage some of you to start using it regularly.  


At my regular dermatologist appointments and my visits to a spa for facials, they remind me about the importance of sunscreen. Let’s be clear; there is a difference between moisturizing and using sunscreen since not all moisturizers include sun protection. Sunscreens are measured in “SPF,” so look for that number when buying your moisturizer. 

Also consider where and when you’ll be moisturizing. There may not be a need for an SPF in your moisturizer when you use it before bed. But when you get up in the morning, that’s when you should be picking up the moisturizer that has an SPF preferably SPF 20 or greater.  

I’ll be back

OK, so I think I’ve given you enough stuff to think about. I hope you enjoyed this installment!  As before, comments are welcome either here on the blog or by email to Jenn6nov at-sign gmail dot com . JJ is always looking for more stuff!

  1. My wife and I went to the same salon, where she would have her hair cut quite short and I would have the beautician would simply cut off the frayed ends of my hair, leaving my hair below shoulder length. The establishment also had male clients who had their hair cut to a traditional male length.


  2. The guy in the Beauty Salon is obviously still mentally in male mode
    He needs to let his female side take over completely
    It will then be normal for her to use a Beauty Salon

  3. I get my nails done regularly at a nail salon and I do it mail or fem mode. It never seems to matter. I have had polish but on in either node to. They have gone to leave it off in male mode but its included so I want it. In fem mode they just ask what color
