    Hello,
    Which sunscreen is good for face and neck. I am using dry touch, Neutrogena. But it too think and hard to get off.
    How do you take off think sunscreens, at the end of day?
    Do you just avoid going out between 10am-3pm? Or do you go out and walk with sun protection?
    I have been pretty fearless in case of sun exposure, but suddenly I am feeling I should care more. Many of friends- just do not go out in sun, not even for soccer practice of their child and they have amazing skin.

    I use Elta MD or La Roche Posay for face and neck, Blue Lizard for body. When I’m out in the sun for a long time I shower at the end of the day, otherwise I just wash my face. I use sunscreen on my face every day. But I try to avoid going out in the sun as much as possible.

    How is the blue lizard? I got soma samples from my PCP I haven't tried it yet.
    I used Shiseido clear stick. But I didn't see much of protecting. Now I am back to Neutrogena stick. Not sure if its helping.
    I apply excessively when I garden.. even with sunscreen I am tanning at a faster speed.

    I am using a big hat when walking and full sleeve tee. I am sure, people are thinking what’s up with her.
    I saw someone wearing a fishing hat, wgen walking. This was today. It is mostly asian women who are over carefull.

    Will try the one’s you mentioned. do you scrub your face or does it just come off. I am also trying not to scrub my face too much.

    I put a little bit of oil before applying soap. It helps remove the sunscreen more easily without too much scrubbing. Just a few drops will do. I got some jojoba oil from Trader Joe but anything you have in on hand should work.

    Most of the Asian women, especially the older Korean ladies are very careful about sun exposure. Hats, long sleeves etc.

    Blue Lizard is okay. I think of sunscreen as a necessary evil, not a fan of the smell and texture of any of the brands.
