  • Look for one that uses zinc oxide as the main sunscreen as it is less chemically offensive to the body then the others. The more zinc oxide and less of the others the better. I personally use the one by Coppertone for sensitive skin because it is affordable and has the highest zinc oxide amongst the major brands short of buying an organic/natural one online for much more.

  • The ones you can spray on! We pretty much use the Coppertone spray on ones. They make life SOOOO much easier.

  • Neutrogena Helioplex spf 100. I am a blond and my DH and both of our boys, 11 and 2, are red heads, so to say the least we are all VERY fair skinned and burn easily. Over the summer we went to water parks, theme parks, fishing, ect... and no one had a sunburn, not even a little pink. It sprays on which makes it easy to put on a wiggling little one. My
    little guy has sensetive skin and he had no problems with this one, but it was strong enough for my DH and older son to wear.
