    I need to know what's the best sunscreen to use. I sweat like a pig :cry: here in Florida so I need one that will last. I'd prefer using wipes. What's everyone using?

    Here is all we use for the whole family!! We discovered this stuff about 6 years ago down in your neck of the woods :) I'm fair skinned and 15 works great. I can actually get a tan without burning!!! Their after tan cream (Rejuvenator)is the best I've used. Stick it in your fridge and you will never deal with sumburn again!! http://underthesunskincare.com

    I use hawaian Tropic SPF 60+ with a wide brim hat. I dont want a doctor and scalpel getting near me cutting off skin cancer anytime soon.

    Ed, I"ve used Bullfrog sunscreen for many years. It was developed for surfers and sweat nor rain will wash it off. Only drawback is even though your skin doesn"t feel sticky grass and dirt stick. By the end of the day you're a mess. Bob

    Bullfrog is the best IMHO. Been using it for many years. Does not matter what you are doing it sticks around and does its job.
    I'm a snow skier, sailor, jet skier, crane operator, rider of fast bikes and all around outdoor nerd for over 20 years. The sun is not a friend of our skin. Skin damage is cumulative, it builds over the years and comes around to haunt you later in life.................be wise!

    The 5 main ingredients in conventional sunscreen all cause cancer individually. Go to your local health food store and get some natural sunscreen.

    Also, just because you burn, doesn't mean you get skin cancer. Cancer will only grow if you have an acidic body (tissues, and stuff). If your body is alkaline, you virtually can't get cancer. There are tons of ways to get the body alkaline, including your diet and the way you think.

    agreed...this was always the route for our uniforms, even in desert jobs. I like sunscreens in the 45 range that are sweat and water "proof". But they are right, any dirt in the air and you are now wearing it for the rest of the day. Work without a hat in the sun? I can't even imagine that.
