If sunscreen doesn't have titanium or zinc oxide,its useless.

I knew about waterproof,but I wonder the reasoning as to why no more sonblocks.

There's no waterproof - only water resistant

I use Kroger store brand. SPF 50. Water resistant. I live in The Valley Of The Sun and have never had a problem.

I used nothing one day, got completely sun burnt. A few weeks later feeling that I had learned my lesson (no water or sweating involved - just out in the sun stationary) I covered myself in 50 SPF and still got burnt. In my experience 3 hours in the sun, is 3 hours in the sun.

Use a long sleeve shirt as a coverup while in the sun. And a wide brimmed hat.

-------------------------

Here's a little trick for long sleeves/sun protection while driving...... cut the pant legs off an old pair of pants. Keep them in the car.

When sun is beating on your arms while in the car, slip the pant legs on your arms for a cover up from the sun. This way you don't need to bend forward while driving, since they only slip on the arms. If the angle of the sun is such that only one arm gets sun, then only one arm gets the pants leg. They slip on and off instantly.
