    What do you guys and gals use for sun screen ?

    I hate the gooey, makes you sweat, skin can't breathe through stuff but I worry about sun burns and skin cancer too...

    Thanks,

    Dave

    I tend to use Sun specific clothing.A little expensive but worth it.Use a small amount of suncreen on exposed areas,hands nose etc.

    Bullfrog is great...But for goodness sake use something! I just had the second Mohse operation on my nose yesterday. Not fun! I began battling skin cancer in 1994. Wear a full brim hat and wear sunscreen!!!! Martinpicker

    I vote for Bullfrog.. been using it for years now. Get the highest SPF you can find!!

    Yet another thing in common with my buddy Martinpicker.. skin cancer is not something you want. Malignant Melanoma and surgery's are not fun.

    I'm a Florida shooter, lived here since 1963, so I know all about the sun.

    You know what I used when I was a kid? Johnson's Baby Oil. Makes your tan soooo nice.

    Then I got older and know what I used? Nothing, nada, nuttin' and not a thing. Boating, fishing, shooting, lying on the beach-nothing. Let the gorgeous sun beat down on me-felt good!

    So, I had my first skin cancer cut out from my face two years ago.

    Use something-higher SPF is much better. You don't want to have holes in your face where the skin used to be. I use something that I can put on the the morning, is sweatproof, and has a 50 SPF.

    Don't want those holes and don't want to see those little cancers popping up as it spoils the effect of that gorgeous tan.

    Agreed on Neutrogena. It is my first choice. Bullfrog is great when it is really hot and you are sweating a lot. You have to remember to re-apply midday when you have rubbed all the sunblock off by sweating and toweling.

    My friends generally have fairer skin than I, so it is easy to remember to apply sunblock...when they do...or when they turn red! :)
