Sunblock or shade?

5 Replies

or both for that matter, I wonder if I should stop lying in the sun, even though I use a sun filter cream, it is time to head for the shade. If you've lived here a while I wonder what you think, I am concerned about the dangers but do love the sun.

Both! And avoid the height of the day outdoors. If you keep in dappled light, and you use a good, not total sunblock you'll get a long lasting, golden, glowing tan and your skin will survive it. There's nothing more depressing that than the raw red wrinkles of all-day-in-the-sun skin. (in my opinion, of course).

Whats the point if you cant enjoy the climate , but i would restrict the sunbathing to an hour a day - max. mid to late afternoon with plenty of sun cream, then skin moisteriser every night.

Good advice!

And remember, the climate is about lots of beautiful bright light, half a year of long warm evenings, warm sand between your toes in the late afternoon, early swim and drying off in the morning sun etc etc etc etc

I wear factor 25 on my face, all year round. During the summer i head for the shade and cover up when it's really hot, between 12 and 5 is the worst. And, sunblock, usually 25 or 30 all over. But, i still get a good tan!

Our kids wear total block on the bits that hang out from their sun suits! but, they still go a lovely golden brown ...
