    I’m African American with dark skin.I’m going to start using Neostrata lotion plus AHA 15 on my legs & arms (I find that it helps with a condition I have known as Keratosis Pilaris).On the bottle it says "using sunscreen is recommended with this product."It simply said sunscreen,with no recommendation of a certain spf.I’ve heard that zinc oxide sunscreen is the best kind of sunscreen.The problem with zinc oxide is it tends to leave a white cast.Would it be okay if I use a regular Spf 30 sunscreen (Like Aveeno) with AHA lotion?

    Yes, it would be OK. Aveeno or Neutrogena have great sunscreens.

    Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are considered better than synthetic sunscreen because they physically reflect UV-rays with low to no irritation.

    This is my first summer with my little girl. She was born in November. I want to make sure she doesn’t get burned she has very fair skin. What do you use on your babies?
    Something you can buy in the store would be nice

    I like the spray on kind that you don’t have to rub in, along with a cream for their faces and ears (just to make sure, and because you don’t want to spray them in the face!) Usually we use WaterBabies or Coppertone Kids.

    Also, Huggies Swimmers were putting out stickers that fade in the sun to remind you when the sunscreen has reached it’s limit and needs to be re-applied. They were neat, so I am wondering where to find them now!

    I have very fair skin and always get sunburned on my face even with sunscreen. What sunscreen do you recommend?

    A higher SPF number (Sun protection factor)
    The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen, the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen offers against UV-B (the ultraviolet radiation that causes sunburn). The SPF is the amount of UV radiation required to cause sunburn on skin with the sunscreen on, relative to the amount required without the sunscreen. So wearing a sunscreen with SPF 30, your skin will not burn until it has been exposed to 30 times the amount of solar energy that would normally cause it to burn.
