The best face wash for pimples are lotions that contain the ingredients Oxybenzone, Titanium Dioxide or Parsol. Supposedly the chemical Mexoryl offers even better protection, according to some doctors.

Coppertone Continuous Spray kept me from burning. I could feel it bond with my skin, although it wasn’t uncomfortable. I felt that for the first time, I had even coverage. It lasted for several hours even when I was in and out of the beach waters. I re-applied after about four hours, but two applications was all that I used after all day in the sun.

Sun damage is cumulative. You may not get a sunburn or even a noticeable tan, but that doesn’t mean your exposure won’t reveal itself in the mirror later. Just as you brush your teeth daily to keep dental problems at bay, you should be using sunscreen daily to ward off the signs of aging. If you fret about the expense of going through so much sunscreen, just think of what you’re saving on anti-aging products and dermatologist visits later.

If you have oily or acne prone adult skin, use an oil-free lotion. Make sure all skin care and cosmetics don’t include ingredients that clog pores. An alcohol free toner is also excellent if you break out with acne. Toner acts as the final step in the cleansing process. It can also help close pores and balance the pH of your skin.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock- When I’m at the beach this is what I use for my face. It has the highest SPF that I know of, 85. I’ve never had my face burn with this. It feels good and it’s oil-free.

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor which is a method of measuring how much UVB light reaches the skin in a given amount of time. When you purchase a sunscreen with a higher SPF rating, then you can stay in the sun for a longer time period before your skin will start to burn.

Coppertone Continuous Spray comes in SPF 15, 30, and 50. It also comes under the Water Babies trade mark. The most recent edition is a sunless tanning spray. I’ve been addicted to Jergen’s sunless tanning moisturizer, but based on my experience with Coppertone Continuous Spray, I’ll give the sunless tanning even coverage spray I try. It isn’t supposed to streak or turn you orange. I’ll let you know.
