Yes we all use sun block.  I use a daily spf in my facial lotion.  If I'm out in the sun I use bull frog 50 spf.  I have very fair skin.  I don't know that sun block causes skin cancer but sun damage absolutely can.

I don't use any sunblock and neither does dh.  Dd only if the UV is high but I did hear that it is more likely than the sun to cause skin cancer so I try not to.  She burns so that is why I do use it on those days that the UV is high and she insists on being outsides.....especially near water. She uses 30 SPF.   Dh and I just tan never burn.

Oh yeah we I'm part Latina part white but have a light tan all year round and dh is Gypsy and has a darker tan all year lond.  DD is something between us.  I'm guessing her skin is just a little more sensitive because she's still little.
