I thought that la peau would be an acceptable response rather than ma peau because it’s clear Marc is referring to his skin so there’s no need to use the personal pronoun?
Freeform Writing Exercise A1
The sentence was :
"Je n'oublie pas la crème solaire parce que je veux protéger ma peau."
using the verb
protéger sa peau = to protect one's skin
However, if you had used a reflexive verb to say the same thing -
se protéger la peau = to protect one's skin
you would have said -
"....pour me protéger la peau"
Interesting point ...
Thank you for raising it!
