"What's that on your face?," asked a friend recently.  I won't name names but a concerned friend was pointing out a sun spot that I have on the side of my forehead.  In fact, I've had them for years but she has never noticed because I normally have them covered up and this friend happened to be seeing me makeup less just a few days after I turned … [Read more...]
