Sunscreen

What type do you normally use on your family? The spray kind? Lotion? Do you have a certain brand that you prefer? Do you look at SPF?

    I prefer an organic brand because I fear the chemicals in sunscreen are cancer causing. :( For the most part we don't us a lot of sunscreen. Yes I usually look at SPF, the higher the better for my little guys and if the children are playing in water, I want a water proof/resistant whatever it's called.

      I am VERY pale, so if I go out without sunscreen I burn within minutes. So for myself I use at LEAST 45 SPF but I like to use 70. I've found that the spray is the most convenient but I'll use the lotion too.

          I totally agree with Theresa, there are many unsafe chemicals in sunscreen. Know what you are buying and the ingredients. Also, old sunscreen doesn't work as well as new sunscreen so we get a new bottle each summer. I also use at UV protectorate top on my son that is long sleeve. I have 2 male friends who have had cancer on their backs and one that even died from it at an early age (undetected, he was single and no one ever saw his back uncovered to see it). I will get my son used to being covered up now for his safety as well.

            I really like the spray kind... much easier but sometimes I wonder if the lotion gives more coverage?
