Here are a few products from MD Solar for protection. I’m hoping to test out the MD Solar Sciences Tinted Moisturizer (I’ll post a review when I can do so). They’ve got an excellent reputation based on reviews that I’ve read, and I’ve long been curious about them. Click to enlarge:

    This is very true. Lots of us keep forgetting or ignoring the fact there always a risk going out in the sun with bare skin. I would love to put on sunscreen on my face daily if I could find a product that doesnt clogged my pores or makes me break out. Right now Im only using sun powder with a high SPF and on my body always protect it with using sunscreen whenever Im out and where the skin is expose to the sun

      Hi there, There are now formulations of sun protection made to keep skin clear. I’ve used Elta MD Clear 46 for a year, and it works well. I’ve had to make sure to completely remove any sunscreen–I use a Clarisonic, oil cleanser and toner.

    I can’t wait for this brand to be sold in Canada! I had my eye on this brand for quite some time. A family member had melanoma skin cancer that spread internally to lungs and intestine.

    Wear sun protection and don’t forget to reapply! What is difficult is finding the right formulation to reapply without build-up and not to ruin your makeup with excellent quality of sun protection.

    I am super happy for this post. A few weeks back I saw a video titled ‘dear sixteen year old me’ which prompted me to check my skin.

    I have a high likely hood of developing this disease since i have fair skin, born a red head, have had major blistering sunburns. I also have a family history.
    After seeing that video I had a bit of a scare with a birthmark changing. While I am still dealing with that currently, I was fortunate enough to learn that odds are it is not cancer but just my skin changing with age. That being said the minor scare has brought this issue closer to the forefront for me and taught me to be much more careful ( I know wear sunscreen every day)
