You must wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen/sunblock regardless off age, sex, or weather. The fairer you are, the more facile you will get a burn and skin cancer. Sun protection is a lifetime commitment.

If your skin is all red and burning at the moment. Two things: 1) take advil or tylenol to reduce the pain and 2) apply a 1% hydrocortisone cream onto the affected skin area every several hours until the skin is healed. Do not overused the hydrocortisone cream more than a month because it can breakdown collagen. If your condition does not heal after a week or so, you need to consult with your general care provider or a board-certified dermatologist.

You select your sunscreen/sunblock based on SKIN TYPE only. If you are unsure of your complete skin type, take the questionnaire developed by clinical researcher, board-certified dermatologist, and author of The Skin Type Solutions, Dr. Leslie Baumann. Register first then take the quiz; afterward, visit the specified forum that is tailored to your unique skin type for product recommendations and discussions about your issues.

Sunscreen uses synthetic agents to convert UV-rays into energy. Sunblock uses minerals to physical reflect UV-rays. Sunblock is known for its high safety profile because there is minute risk of irritation. The downside side for sunscreen is irritation and you have to wait for 20-30 minutes before it can work properly. On the other hand, the downside for sunblock is that it can render a white tinge on the face depending on skin tone. Some sunblock now contain micronized mineral pigments that blends better (not perfect, though) onto the face after a few minutes. For optimal protection, it is imperative to reapply every 2 hours, especially you are oily and sweating from physical exertion. You must be liberal with your application or else you will get the square-root of the intended protection.

You can use the follow suggestions for the face or body

=== Synthetic options ===

For Oily Skin:

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 30/45/55
Neutrogena Age Shield SPF 55 (fragrance-free)
Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Spray SPF 30/50 (NOTE: if you have experience that alcohol stings and burns your skin in the past, do not get this product. Ethanol helps dry out the product onto the skin, but it can also dry out your skin. The spray is helpful to spray on large skin areas. If you want to apply on the face, spray on your palms, first. I say this is best for use as reapplication when you are sweating because the alcohol will cut through the oil and sweat.

For Dry Skin:

Aveeno Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion SPF 55
Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion SPF 55 (fragrance-free)

=== Physical Options ===

For Oily Skin

Aveeno Baby Natural Protection MineralBlock Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 30 (fragrance-free)

Chris asks…

how can i get rid of heat rash?

i have heat rash on my face 4 years and i cant ger rid of it fist i thought it was pimples but i was wrong can any one help me?

admin answers:

Firstly, are you sure it’s a heat rash? It sounds more like rosacea. Heat rash usually occurs on the body, particularly in areas that are in frequent contact with something, e.g. Under a woman’s breasts, the back, etc. For heat rash on the body, wash well and dust with corn starch powder … NOT talcum powder. Johnson and Johnson make a very good corn starch baby powder, but I don’t know whether this would work on your face. I live in the tropics of Australia on the northern Queensland coast where it’s very hot and very, very humid during the summer months which are our rainy season, and have cured the heat rash on a number of my patients with this simple remedy, The old remedy used for years by women up here before the availability of corn starch powder has been to use corn flour. It works, but tends to get lumpy and is rather messy. However I urge you to consult a doctor to see if it’s rosacea.
