Thanks for the useful post. your point about the snow is something ive learned the hard way! ive been skiing and caught the sun on my face much worse than i ever have on the beach! Crazy but i suppose its my own fault for not giving it more thought.

Your step one is right on the money and so important! I like to use foundation that has SPF in it, but I've really only found them as high as 15. I like Eucerin Everyday Protection face lotion SPF 30. I always used Eucerin SPF on my face at the pool when I was in college. But now, I work with the company and they let me try their new Everyday Protection line. The body lotion has SPF 15 and is great to use as my daily lotion so I am always protected.

I've used that sunscreen before. The % of zinc oxide is REALLY low. Much better non whitening ones can be found with higher % of zinc.

Just about all these sunscreens will offer better protection than the Eucerin one.

Good skin care including sun protection and gentle cleansing can keep your skin healthy and glowing for years to come. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. This is when the sun's rays are the strongest. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats. Apply generous amounts of broad-spectrum sunscreen 30 minutes before going outdoors and reapply every two hours, after heavy sweating or after being in water. Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow.
