I've pretty much only been putting on sunscreen when I'm going to be outside for a significant time, or I'm going to be in direct sunlight for more than a couple of minutes.

I don't do it when just walking to my car from my house, but with the hot sun shining down now I wonder if I should just do it everyday.

What do the rest of you do?

I only wear UV rated long sleeves now. Fortunately that fad (acetate fishing shirts) is so far along they are cheap. Also floppy hats always and fishing cowl on the water. Gloves when kayaking. Sunscreen for everywhere exposed, when exposed for more than 10 min. 


I am the same, I don't wear sunscreen daily. I always have a sunscreen stick in my purse in case I find myself sitting outside for lunch exposed to sun. Otherwise I only put it on when I am going to be outside for more than 30 minutes. I also love sun protective clothing for hikes and outdoor activities.

I'm like threefitty, fishing shirts, they have some good options now, wrap around hat and fingerless gloves. I keep waiting for a study that shows sunscreen causes cancer. I live by corpus christi texas and spend lots of time on the beach.

I wear it everyday on my face, arms and chest. While I’m driving, I notice how much exposure those areas get. It’s like a game for me now. How white can I be? I get mad if my chest gets any color at all.
