Argh, it drives me nuts.
My arms are now 3 shades darker than my face and I can see some faint freckles beginning to form. I have started toting sunscreen around in my handbag and keeping a bottle on my office desk so I can whip it out before going anywhere.
I am thinking of buying really long gloves just like female motorcyclists do in Vietnam (their gloves extends alllll the way past the elbows), or of stealing my father's golf arm socks to wear while driving. If i really want to be cheap, I can cut off the sleeves from an old long-sleeved shirt, sew on some elastic and use that instead. I am wondering if wearing arm shields seems too "auntie" though.
Anyway, what do you readers do to protect yourselves from UV rays while you are out and about in your car? Do you use sunscreens, arm shields or super illegal heavily tinted car windows? Or, has it never occurred to you at all?
