I am moving to the desert at the end of May as you can tell from my name & will be visiting there in 2 1/2 weeks. I need to stock up on some good sunscreen. I've always just used Coppertone, but is there anything better that anyone uses that works just as well? I know I have to get one with a high SFP--especially in a state like Arizona! I am starting to get concerned about it because I do have mild Rosacea in my face. I don't want to get that worse when I move due to the dramatic difference in climate I will experience. I know that has nothing really to do with climate, but my face can already get a little too red for my liking even though it's a mild form.

For those who live in hot climates such as Arizona, what do you recommend??

Anthelios by La Roche with Mexoryl.

Hands down the best. My dermatologist sells it, it used to be sold overseas only for some backwards reason, but the FDA approved it and you can now get it anywhere. My daughter used to be sensitive to the sun and I use skin care products which leave me prone to burning sometimes....this has never disappointed.

I don't use any of the conventional sunscreens because they are loaded with chemicals. I have tried natural ingredient sunscreens from the healthfood store, and my favorite is Burt's Bees:

Thanks, I will check these out. I know what you mean, I have pretty sensitive skin when it comes to some products. Took me forever to find a moisturizer that wouldn't burn my face--finally ended up with Oil of Olay for sensitive skin, best I've used so far.

Any special kind of sunscreen you'd recommend for the face as well considering my condition? Or could I use the regular sunscreen on my face, too?
