I am firmly in the camp that wants to look long and hard at what junk they actually put in sun screens.
I used to use P20 until the reformulated it. Saved me from burning to a crisp in Aruba !
These days I am afraid to say I use nothing....
Time will tell but as I am 50 now I'm not too sure how much difference its gonna make to me now !

keep using the sunscreen bro, unless you plan on dying tomorrow, still makes a difference! Also use the sunglasses helps prevent cataracts.

New studies show that sunscreen does not actually help the fight against skin cancer. I work 12-14 hour days in the sun as a river guide and I have found that a couple of the most important factors in sunscreen is make sure its less than a year old. Sunscreen goes bad believe it or not. Apply sun screen an hour before exposing to the sun or you can get a burn worse than not applying. my 2 cents.

you do realize they are selling tap water? they spew this vibrational energy bullshit that would make even a Star Trek script writer blush. These are the sorts of scams you can't get mad at. you can only admire how easy it is for them to relieve idiots of their money and go "why didn't I think of this?"

Abstinence from being on the water where the most UV radiation exposure occurs
When the sun is low in the sky : 8-10:00 a.m. and 2-4:00 p.m.

UV radiation is reflected ...water up to 100%...sand up to 25%

More than 40% of UV exposure occurs when you are not in direct sunlight

UV exposure is cumulative and its damage is often irreversible

Inside vision like a well lit office is 500 lux
Outside vision the noon sun emits up to 100,000 lux..that is over 200X

So also protect your eyes :thumb:

Riemann P20


This.

I am from an Irish family so I burn REALLY easily.

Went to Egypt a few years ago. 45-51 C on some days. P20, on once in the morning, a top up later in the afternoon and I barely got a tan.

Really impressive stuff.


This too. I'm generally not bad in the sun but being from Scotland means I'm not very used to it!

I'v been using p20 spf50 this week in tarifa. 6 days out of 7 at the beach for 2 to 8 hours and I'm only just now picking up a bit of a tan.
