I have exceptionally fair skin and freckles as well as a family history of skin cancer. I'm not complaining, I absolutely love my freckles but it does mean that from the first day of spring until mid-fall a good portion of my time is spent making sure I'm properly covered with the right SPF. Thankfully science and the cosmetics industry have advanced by leaps and bounds since I was a kid and greasy Coppertone is a thing of the past. This summer I'll be focusing on mineral sunscreens that do double duty with a nice tint (so I don't have to wear extra makeup) or with a supremely easy powder application. With these and a giant hat, I think I'll be all set.
