Reasons to Wear Sunscreen Daily

Do You Wear Sunscreen Every Day?

After getting a pretty wicked sunburn on by upper back and neck, then peeling a week later, I feel like I have molted. But the new me is a bit smarter. While, I usually apply a moisturizer fortified with SPF to my face daily, I used to neglect the back of my neck but no more. These days, post burn, I am taking serious precautions — especially if I know I am going to out in the sun running or just running errands. What about you . . .

I wear it daily because noticed that with sunscreen, I don't break out as often versus going barefaced. But I cannot use any of the drugstore sunscreens on my face since they break me out. I have to get the pricey kind but I must deal and find deals. Thank goodness for online stores.

I wear it on my face and neck everyday and if I am going to be outside at all (not just in the office) I slap it on everywhere else too. Lately I have been trying to remember to put it on the back of my hands because I realized that I never do that and I am going to start to get sun spots if I don't pay more attention to it. It is easy yo wash that off though.

Gabriela: I know what you mean. I use Neutrogena Dry Touch, it feels light and it doesn't leave your skin oily or greasy or shiny. I've only found the once for face, I just use regular sunscreen on my body though. Hope that helps!

So right now I'm using Kiss My Face. It's actually not a zinc oxide only type, but it doesn't make my skin react at all, which is nice! There are other brands like Badger, and Burt's Bees which would probably work for you since they're zinc oxide based. It was a lot of trial and error, that's for sure. Nowadays I only really put sunscreen on my face...and other places that burn easily. And I really only put it on when I'm going to be in direct sun for long periods of time.

Yikes, gray skin! Yeah, if you can recommend a brand that would be awesome :)
bluesarahlou bluesarahlou 5 years're allergic. I am too. :) The only kinds I've found to work without having allergic reaction were the zinc oxide ONLY types. And then the challenge is to find a type that doesn't turn your skin gray. I can't remember the name right this minute but when I do I'll let you know what brand I use.

I don't use it ever because every single kind I've tried makes me break out with a MAJORLY itchy rash. I'd love to be protected from skin cancer without the massive suffering!!!!

I know I should use it more often, but I hate the way it feels on my skin so for the most part I only use it when I know I'll be in the sun awhile.
