What SUNSCREEN do you use?

Recommended Posts

Many of you might recall that when I met Juan Carlos back in May (after sitting by the Hilton pool for 3 days) he said that I should not get any sun on my skin for 2 months prior to the wedding. I have fair skin and it turns red in the sun - which is not good for pictures!


I am going to need to be a gallon bottle of sunblock since I get to Cabo on the 3rd and don't get married until the 7th! I have tired lots of sunscreens in the past and have never found one that works really great. I hate it when your face stings from sunblock or when it doesn't rub in good and you look like you have a white haze on your body!


My other issue is that I usually miss a spot somewhere and end up with a glowing red area on my arm or foot or neck - putting on sunscreen sucks! I wish someone would invent a sunblock that you could attach to your showerhead and then you could be totally covered while taking a shower....I know this doesn't make a lot of sence but it's my dumb blond logic talking!

i like La Roche Posay Anthelios Extreme Fluid 60+.


it is mostly sold in eruope and when i was having major laser work, retin a on my face my esthetician and dermatologist recommened it for me. i think the canadian version does not have mexoryl in it which is what makes the product different and better than sunscreens available domestically.


New sunscreen, Anthelios, offers better cancer protection


What happened? Beach goers and others enjoying fun in the sun will soon have a new option for blocking the sun's harmful rays.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Anthelios SX, an over-the-counter sunscreen that offers protection from both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation.


Most sunscreens sold in the United States mainly block UVB rays, which helps prevent sunburn and other types of skin damage. But Anthelios offers better protection from deeper penetrating UVA rays, according to the manufacturer. This may help reduce the risk of various types of skin cancer — including melanoma and basal and squamous cell carcinomas. Better UVA protection also may reduce sun-related skin wrinkling.


Anthelios contains ecamsule, an ingredient that's been marketed as Mexoryl SX in Europe and Canada since 1993. The sunscreen is made by the cosmetics company L'Oreal. It's expected to be available as a daily moisturizing cream in select pharmacies, drugstores and doctor's offices throughout the United States in the fall. Other L'Oreal products containing the new ingredient may follow.


What does this mean to you? Anthelios offers various advantages to traditional sunscreens. But the added protection may come at a cost. Although U.S. prices aren't yet available, similar products sold in Canada cost about twice as much as traditional sunscreens — or even more.


"The expense for this sunscreen needs to be balanced with the need for broader UVA protection," says Lawrence Gibson, M.D., a dermatologist at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. There isn't necessarily a single correct answer for everyone. "To determine whether this sunscreen is the best choice for you, weigh all the factors with your dermatologist," Dr. Gibson says.


And there's more to skin protection than sunscreen. In addition to using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15, it's important to limit your time in the sun — especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun's harmful rays are strongest. When you're outdoors, wear a broad-rimmed hat and tightly woven clothing that covers your arms and legs. Avoid tanning beds and tan-accelerating products.


"No sunscreen is a substitute for avoiding the most intense sun of the day and wearing appropriate clothing," Dr. Gibson says.


Also examine your skin regularly. Report to your doctor any new skin growths or changes in existing moles or freckles.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
