Favorite Sunscreen

It's hard to find the best sunscreen out there. Certain brands may irritate our skin or make us break out, so don't give up looking for a sunscreen that works best for you!

  1. I was using 110 block by Neutrogena. I don't get tan with this but also continue to get new BCCs. I also always wear long sleeves, and huge hat if in the sun. When swimming, a rash guard and tights.

    1. Neutrogena is a great brand--I have used the 110 SPF myself on my face when vacationing, and it works really well. I also continue to get new precancerous spots and have had both BCC and SCC over the last several years. Unfortunately, my damage continues because I mistreated my skin by tanning during my teens and 20s. The damage just keeps on rearing its ugly head.


      It sounds like you are taking all the right steps--staying covered up and using sunscreen regularly--you are being proactive. Keep it up! I am keeping you in my thoughts and hoping for the all-clear at your next appointment!
