    Sunscreen - hairy arms

    so I need a sunscreen for times when i have extended sun exposure with no shade. I try to use mineral based stuff, but it just seems to catch the hair on my arms, and make me look as though I have white sleeves (I'm a guy).

    Any brand suggestions?

    Depends if he wants to cover his arms or not. I don't see the point of rolling your sleeved up then putting sunscreen on bear arms. I wear the same white cotton shirts on the beach (if it is hot enough) as I do in the office. But I never wear sunscreen, and not much would persuade me there can be any health benefits to plastering your living skin with mineral oil.

    You might wanna try tinted sunscreen - that's what I often use on my face if I'm outdoors for a long time and need a thick coat that would be way too white otherwise. I use DDF sunscreen - it's expensive, though. I bought mine at Sephora.

    Oh lordy, just get the spray stuff.

    It sprays on clear (like hair spray) and then you can rub it in so you make sure it
    gets past those hairy arms!

    Anyway, you'll be Shiny Man, but not white.

    Don't put anything on your skin that you aren't whiling to eat. You skin absorbs a good portion of that sunscreen which then enters your blood stream, the next stop is your liver...
