Friday Tip!

Dear Constant Reader,

We are on the road to Portland, Maine for two shows at the Lucid Stage, plus a class. It’s been a sunny summer and that makes me think of your tip:

Wear sunscreen!

I know that sounds obvious, but it’s always good to have a reminder. You have all been warned of the dangers of too much sun — burns, peeling, premature wrinkles, freckles, risk of skin cancer, &c.

I want to remind you of another danger specifically for the burlesque dancer — uneven color. I don’t mean bikini tan lines (and see me avoiding the subject as to whether they’re sexy or not). I mean farmer’s tan. You may not even notice it’s happening as you go about your daily life until… you take off your costume on stage and you have a darker area on your chest, right where the neck of your blouse starts (or ends, depending on what sort of person you are). It’s distracting.

So, everyday, put sunblock on your décolletage.

And moisturize too, but that’s a tip for another day!
