Characters: FashionEtc assistant editors, Lindsey, a dedicated sun worshiper; and Piper, she of the alabaster skin
... And Action ...
Lindsey: I've been a true sun worshiper for as long as I can remember. Actually more than that, a sun addict. Dare I admit it?—a tanorexic. During PTT (prime time tanning hours) on a sunny day, NOTHING can get in the way of me and my rays.
Piper: On the other hand, I am proudly pale, and yell at Lindsey everyday to wear sunscreen. A devotee of SPF 70, I've been turned away at makeup counters for asking if the brand might have something a little less "orange." ("That's the lightest we go," the saleswoman said.) Sure, I intentionally sought some color in my teen days, but a two-year leftover burn (cap sleeves, baseball game, 2005) ignited my caution—and my fear of wrinkles.
