I have olive skin, mediterranean ancestry. I like to get some sun to get tan, but don't like to wear sunscreen. Should I wear sunscreen?

In brief: Zinc oxide

Look for a sunscreen with zinc oxide (preferably micronized zinc oxide).
That will give you a physical block and protect your skin from skin cancer and the signs of aging, without the use of chemicals found in may sunblocks.
