Despite the fact that anything after SPF 30 pretty much does the same job.
4. In the summer, you’ve been known to walk around with a parasol. Or umbrella. You don’t care if it looks slightly crazy.
5. You can be fairly dramatic when it comes to securing a spot somewhere in the shade.

7. When people suggest an outdoor activity, your response can sometimes read like something from Dracula.

17. You’ve spent what seems to be a lifetime searching for the perfect daily moisturizer with SPF.
BTW, found it: It’s Josie Maran’s Argan Daily Moisturizer. Only problem is that it’s $32, which will become a new and dangerous monthly expense.
18. And actually, your personal care expenses skyrocket in the summer because you end up buying sunscreen each time you go to the drugstore.
20. In order for you to be OK with outdoor seating, an umbrella is an absolute requirement.
