    ? if you don't mind skin cancer and getting wrinkly/sunspot covered faster sure, don't wear sunscreen. Otherwise everyone should wear it.

    You may be too cool for sunscreen, but sunburns don't care how cool you are.

    ...and by cool, I mean popularity, not temperature.

    I tan up really well and basically never burn, even when I've been in hawaii or mexico, but I still put sunscreen on just so I won't look like a crusty guido from the jersey shore later in my life.

    I got a 2nd degree burn for not wearing sunscreen while boating one day. Blisters grew and blew up like bubbles on my back. If that sounds cool to you, by all means, don't wear sunscreen.

    It's not necessary if you never leave your house.

    Honestly, I live in the UK though so I barely ever see the sun. But if I do, I need all the protection I can get.

    Seriously, I don't get how this is up for discussion?

    I just got a fairly bad sunburn on the top of my head and nose over Easter when I was out for a few hours during a cookout, and it'll probably be totally gone by this weekend - all which could've been prevented if I hadn't thought, "Well it's April (but still in the mid-80's), I won't need sunscreen!"

    Get your first really bad sunburn where it hurts to put on a shirt and you can't sleep because it's so painful. I've been on many vacations near the equator and the sun is no joke, even more so if you are fair skinned.

    80% of my genetics is from Northern Europe - Sweden, Germany, little bit of Irish, etc... so I'm checking all the fair skinned boxes. I went to the Bahamas one year, burned through a whole can of SPF80 (might've even been 100) and still walked away with 2nd degree sunburns - couldn't lift my arms to put on a shirt because it happened while jet-skiing.
