When putting on sun tan lotion, am I supposed to apply sunscreen on first and then sun tan lotion? Or do I just use suntan lotion since it has SPF 5?

When putting on sun tan lotion, am I supposed to apply sunscreen on first and then sun tan lotion? Or do I just use suntan lotion since it has SPF 5?

SPF15 Broad-spectrum: Apply 1 oz of sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 (the higher the SPF, the more UVB protection) liberally 15-30 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every 2 hours & after swimming, sweating, or drying off with a towel. Use a sunscreen that says “broad-spectrum” on the label - that means it will screen out both UVB and UVA rays. Look for the new UVA rating system: 4 stars = highest UVA protection. ...Read more

What is a good sunscreen lotion for a 6 month old?

What is a good sunscreen lotion for a 6 month old?

Stay in the shade: A 6 month old baby is still young, and will get sunburned quite easily. Keeping the baby in the shade is the safest thing to do. If using sunblock, the zinc oxide and titanium oxide ingredients are physical sunblocks (not chemical sunblocks), and stay on the surface of the skin, usually without any skin reactions. A shady place, a hat, and clothing are more protective than sunscreen. ...Read more

Are sunscreens/sunblocks actually good for your skin like lotion is?

Yes, Absolutely!: The ultra violet radiation in sunlight is damaging to human skin. It breaks bonds in the dna of skin cells and can cause cancer, not to mention premature aging, sun spots and wrinkles! Suncreen acts as a protectant against this harmful radiation.

What is the best sunscreen in the US market? My son and I had an allergy reaction on couple of sunscreen such as spray kind and some lotion type.

Contact dermatitis: Unfortunately, allergies are vary from person to person, so predicting which one is best is difficult. Check the ingredients of the ones that you were allergic to, for ones they have in common. Maybe you can narrow it down. Also, look for 'sensitive skin' products; dye free, fragrance free. Sunscreens designed for babies may be an idea, as well. ...Read more

How to prevent sun poisioning on african americans? And what kind sunscreen lotions can be used on very sensitive skin?

Depends: I recommend a broad-spectrum sunscreen offering protection against both uva and uvb rays. Usually, at least three active ingredients are called for. These generally include paba derivatives, salicylates, and/or cinnamates for uvb absorption; benzophenones for shorter-wavelength uva protection; and avobenzone, ecamsule, and titanium dioxide, or zinc oxide for the remaining uva spectrum. ...Read more
