Yes, yes.  Wear sunscreen.  Next think you'll be telling us is to enjoy the power and beauty of our youth.

I'm a pale bastard.  How can you forget the nose?  Nose and ears always get burned and that hurts bad.  I try to wear a wide brimmed hat when I'm in the sun for a long time anyway to minimize.

I wish they would have linked to some of the sunscreens that aren't thick and greasy like they claim.  I can't stand that thick lotion stuff.  It never rubs in and every bit of dust sticks to you.  The sprays are pretty good, but I wish they were truely unscented.  They claim to be unscented, but they still have a scent.  Make one that smells like dirt or hay....I'd even take manure over most of the current unscented smell (sorry, fragrence).  Or make a true unscented one, ie they literally they should smell like nothing instead of the currently flowery unscented versions.  Do you hear me scientists and marketers?  DO YOU HEAR ME?

Good news: there are such products (barely scented, not thick like you're applying plaster).

Bad news: it's the expensive stuff. The Vichy Anhelios line for instance.

Try oil of olay, I hate greasy too and it doesn't feel greasy at call. I fly a lot and it's good for the dry air/skin.

The wife had a skin cancer scare at around 20, and has, since then, always used sun screen and kept herself covered from the sun.  She half Spanish and half Irish.  You would think that blend would give her a medium complexion, but, no she has the ultra-fair Irish skin.  She's now 60, and one of the benefits of all this is that she looks very much younger.  When she tells people that she has a 40 year daughter, they're shocked, thinking that she's under 40, herself.  So there are other benefits to protecting yourself from the sun.

"...vacationing in a tropical spot (where the sun is especially intense), go for 50 or even 70. "

Wasn't there a report done that indicated that the chemicals in these SPF BAJILLION sunscreens were just as bad, if not worse for you, than then the actual sun?!?

I used SPF 15 in Mexico. Reapplied when I felt it was needed. It worked fine. I didn't burn at all.

As a Irish descended person, I will testify to that. If I'm out and about, I'm wearing at a minimum a windbreaker and a hat. If I drive around without being covered, I'll get sunburned very quickly.

I have English ancestors who bequeathed to me very pale skin skin with a propensity to both sunburn and irritation. I've tried every sunscreen on the market and haven't been completely satisfied with any of them. What's worse is that we now live in Georgia with its hot, humid summers and sunscreen seems to melt off my face.

From TFA: check the ingredients for zinc or avobenzone, the only two that provide top-notch UVA coverage, he says. From another FA:  http://www.ehow.com/list_5883464_dangers-polident_.html  Don't get that zinc in your mouth. Bad move.

I think butter and some zombies will fix that sun damage  for you.

I'm in Texas, our summers tend to be lethal. A wide brimmed hat (3" brim on all sides minimum) and a light colored breathable windbreaker are a life saver for those who burn easy.

I also have trouble with the sunscreen and such, sweats off pretty fast.

I'm half Welsh, half Sicilian. My complexion reads 100% Welsh. My 70 year old Sicilian father has spent his entire life in the sun while playing golf, sailing, and doing yard work. He never wears sunscreen and still looks a solid 20 years younger than his age. I, on the other hand, being pale, freckled, and extremely prone to lobster-red burning, read the writing on the wall over a decade ago and actually have a bottle of sunscreen specifically for car rides in addition to the daily layer I apply in the morning all over my body.

I'm guessing I'll still wind up with skin cancer. Stupid genetics.

I live in FL and sunscreen slides off me too.  And I haven't found a good hat yet because in addition to my awesomely cancer-prone skin, I also have a head too big for "one size fits all."

Neutrogena (IIRC) used to make a gel-based sunscreen that I loved.  I use No Ad 50+, recommended by a dermatologist years ago.

Standard rule: A shot glass full. Read that recently and I'm making myself remember that for the next beach trip. I always wear full makeup to the beach so it's not so much my face I worry about. All it took was one scare for me to either cover up or slather on the sunscreen. Head's up folks. . it was only by sheer luck that my regular doc happened to check my back and refer me to a dermatologist. Who looks at their back in a mirror? You can't. When the incision site didn't heal I knew something was wrong, and it was. Went back and they took out a huge swatch of the skin off of my back. There was not enough percocet in the world for that pain but I'm now cancer free. Save yourself a long recovery period and just deal with the sticky tacky messy stuff.

I read some interesting studies showing that there is not a liner correlation between rate of cancer and exposure time.  People with chronic sun exposure had lower rate of melanoma (and other cancers) than average. Sun on a regular basis protects from cancer, while those who are couped up indoors don't have the benefits so when exposed to sun  they are at greater risk. Sunscreen negates these benefits.  Also contrary to popular belief, take your sun in mid-afternoon when the beneficial UVB is greatest, it's pretty much nonexistent in the morning and evening.
