I wear a lot of short-sleeved shirts (don’t care for sleeveless/tank styles) and don’t want the dreaded “farmer’s tan” that comes with.
I have some 30 SPF or 50 SPF (one’s upstairs and the other is downstairs just in case I forgot to put it on upstairs!) that I apply daily to combat this, but it seems that I always have a slight demarcation where my sleeve/neckline falls. I’m not out in the sun all day—just long enough for a 20-30 minute dog walk, and other general errand-running. My sunscreen isn’t expired (I don’t think…)—I’ve had it for about a year.
Is there a “wait time” after applying sunscreen before it becomes fully protective?
My skin then feels sticky all day (I use that Banana Boat stuff) which I hate. Any suggestions for a better brand (even if more expensive)?
Is there no truly “sun-proof” sunscreen out there?
