Do You Wear Sunscreen Every Day?

Summer is right around the corner, which means it's time to start stocking up on sunscreen. With all of the SPF-enhanced products on the market these days, it's easy to wear sunscreen every day — I, for one, never leave the house without SPF 15 moisturizer on my face. What about you?

It's hard for me to find sunscreen that doesn't cause an allergic reaction

Yeah, you could say I use sunscreen! I am super-fair and also have already had some bad sunburns- and my family has had brushes with skin cancer.My primer, foundation and powder have spf but that's not enough unless I'm just going to and from work. I also have issues with lotion with spf not working- I just put sunscreen over my lotion.I just got Neutrogena's Dry Touch sunscreen SPF 70 which I use on my face, neck & decolette if I will be outside in the direct sun for any length of time in spring and summer. It's not greasy and doesn't sting. I also use Neutrogena's cooling spray sunscreen on my arms, legs, etc.In the fall I use Peter Thomas Roth SPF 30 sunscreen on my face over lotion, and in the winter I use the Peter Thomas Roth SPF sunscreen+ lotion on my face over other lotion for extra moisture + protection.The good news? I, like smart blonde, am often mistaken for 10 or more years younger than I am. And I am complemented on my skin a lot. And I won't die of skin cancer.

I need to start wearing sunscreen everyday to keep the freckles from popping up everywhere.

I never wear sunscreen, (maybe except the one in my lipbalm and foundation) prolly because i've heard bad things about it, but also it creates havoc to my atopic skin, its a dilemna....

having spent almost every day out by the pool (I was a swimmer and then a lifeguard) I used to never wear sunscreen as a kid but even though I started to as a teen, I feel like I can see the sun damage in my skin already and I'm only 22! I'm always looking for new sunscreens that are light enough to use in place of moisturizer, anyone else do this too or do people use both? I'm using dermologica's solar defense booster which I mix with a bit of their tinted moisturizer to get a nice glow.

Unfortunately, I almost never do - I just never quite picked up the habit. However, I do carry around a sunblock stick with me, just in case!

I wear it if I'm planning on being in the sun, but otherwise I hardly ever burn and spend the day inside.

my facial cosmetics contain sunscreen but i realize that is not enough. i also don't wear sunscreen on my arms and legs everyday but i avoid the sun as much as possible. when i know i'll be outside a lot, i do put on a high SPF sunscreen. i should get better about it. looks like the sun's rays are getting more intense each year. global warming, anyone?

I very rarely wear sunblock. I do apply it when I am planning to be outdoors for a longer time than usual. Also, I will apply it to specific areas when I get uneven tanlines that bother me. Usually I find that I am nore likely to get burned when I am wearing sunblock, in fact, most of the worst burns I've ever had were gotten when wearing sumblock.

I usually never get a tan nevermind a burn (I'm not an outdoors person), so my whole life I pretty much avoided wearing sunscreen. And that has bitten me in the ass a couple of times. The most severe 2 happened while I was in Atlanta, GA. The first time, I got a 1st degree burn on my arms and shoulders. The second time, I got a 3rd degree burn on my legs. After the legs, I decided to make sunscreen my new best friend. ;)

I use SPF 15 on my face every day, but I really should wear it all over..living here in FL I need to be extra careful about sun damage. Yikes! If, I'm going to the beach, or the pool I definitely wear it all over & I usually use a higher SPF.

I just got Neutrogena's SPF 45 body lotion. It is amazing. It feels sort of greasy at first but it absorbs really well and quickly and it has a really nice scent. At my dermatologist's office I bought Elta Gold moisturizer with SPF 45. It blocks both UVA and UVB rays. You can find it online or at dermatologists offices. It is amazing albeit a little expensive, $28. Neutrogina has come out with a ton of new products and beauty.com is having a 20% off sale, today only.

I NEVER skip wearing sunscreen. In the winter I use SPF 15, and in the summer I wear nothing less than SPF 30 and I do make sure to reapply every 3 hours. It seems like so many dermatologist say that the way to really prevent wrinkles is to use SPF 15 or more daily, and as the saying goes "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Eucerin SPF 30 moisturizer all through the winter or, lately, Origins out smart SPF 25 every single day, and SPF 40 on my arms and neck. I am a very pale redhead and don't really have a choice! I burn in 10 minutes or less.
