Not only do I have fair skin, I have dry skin, so I don't really know if you'd consider it greasy or not.

Yep, I've got dry skin too - eczema and typical redhead skin. On the bright side, if the power goes out, I do believe I glow in the dark ;)

Now I know why you want a non greasy sunscreen. My eczema gets worse when I use oily creams that sit on the skin.
Nivea shoud be a good option for you, it doesn't irritate my skin and it feels very light.
Hope you find the right product for you

As for the Nivea - thanks for the heads up - I haven't tried it, and 30 is okay, since I'm avoiding as much of the outdoors as is possible!
(Although explaining to my favorite horse why we can't ride for a while will not be easy)
Early morning and evening rides.

My friends in high school used to tease me that I glowed in the dark. As much as I tried (cringe), I could not tan.

I'm waiting for pale to be the new "in" thing.

waiting...
waiting...
waiting...

oh heck, let's make our own fashion trend!


Barbara - you have a very good point - can't do early morning in the winter...it takes a good hour just to groom a winter coat & give 'em breakfast. BUT.... I'm trying to talk Steve into trying an evening ride :D

Good luck, Jkath! Along with Nivea, Aveeno and Almay products are also both easy on the skin. Lots of skin products also have built-in sunscreen, like moisturizers and foundation. SPF 30 is really all you need, according to recent studies, anything higher doesn't really provide any more protection. Just keep reapplying. You can also get sprays and sticks. A broad-brimmed hat is always a good idea.

My friends used to ask me when the plaster of paris comes off?!
I can't tan either! I burn well though
