Re: [RC] Sunscreen for Riders - Glenda R. Snodgrass

What sort of sunscreen products does anyone use while
riding for their faces and any exposed areas of skin? 

On my face, I use the "Face SPF 30 Sun Block" from Clinique.  It's a bit
expensive, but it's waterproof and sweatproof and *really* stays on all
day, even when riding in heavy humidity (I'm on the Gulf Coast).  I have a
lot of skin allergies and this is the rare product I can use without any

On my arms, I can use cheap stuff like Banana Boat (no Coppertone, I'm
allergic to that). If I'll be in and out of wooded areas, I use the Off
Skintastic combo sunscreen & bug repellent.  It smells *horrible* but it
really works both as a sunscreen and as a bug repellent, keeping those
yellow flies and deer flies and skeeters off my delicate skin. :)  I 
cannot wear regular bug repellant (spray Off) in the sun or I break out in 
a rash, but for some reason that combo cream works fine.  

Wearing a long-sleeve very lightweight white cotton shirt is also a good 
thing to keep both bugs and sun off your arms.
