Best sunscreen to use?

I am very fair skinned and go for runs mid mornings. I have been using a 50 spf sunscreen and applying 30 minutes before I go out and making sure I have a good layer applied. I am still getting one heck of a tan, even though I am out 30-60 minutes. I am not burning at all which means its doing something, but I still worry. I don't mind a little color, but I am getting quite brown. With as fair skinned as I am, I know I am at higher risk for skin cancer. I need to protect myself. What should I be looking for in a sunscreen?

  • Look for UVA AND UVB protection. I don't think you can do any better than that. Keep up the good work!
