The LRP Anthelios Ultra Light Fluid is my holy grail. I wear it Every. Single. Day. Inside + out. I didn't start wearing SPF (on my face/neck) until I was 53 years old. At least I wore SPF hats + shirts for about 30 years prior to that, but no dermatologist ever explained UVA + UVB to me. I did a ton of research after I started wearing sunscreen. And what I really learned was how far behind the rest of the world we are in the U.S. Since the early 90s, Europeans have had better sun protection. I buy the Ultra Fluid from Canada, from Ireland + from eBay. I have simply not found a sunscreen my skin likes better than that Anthelios. I also use the Derma Kids spray on the back of my hands. And I still wear SPF hats + shirts in the spring + summer. Now I wear them everyday, when before I understood all this, I wore them when I exercised or worked in the garden. Now I wear them to work. And my face is always tipped away from the sun. The sun is not my friend.

Thanks for sharing Susan! I agree, the US is ridiculously behind when it comes to sunscreens. Good thing we're now able to easily purchase better sunscreens from other countries!

Thanks for the guide. I never know what to look for in a sunscreen. It's especially important where I live.

Joy to the World!

This is such a brilliant guide to different sunscreens for certain skin types, I've always just used the same one each and every summer! Will be keeping your advice in mind for sure :) Hope you're having a lovely week so far!

Love this round-up of sunscreens, Jen! I love La Roche Possay products and their sun screens are great!
