Sunscreen Is Not Sunblock

I never really thought about this until I was at the Dermatologist yesterday, having a couple chunks of my skin shaved off to perform biopsies on. As I train with my kettlebells outside during the summer, and often have to stand around in the direct sunlight during the course of my job, I need to be more aware of what the sun’s doing to my skin. So should you.

Sunblock, which is opaque, blocks almost all of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. It consists largely of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Sunblock does not have to be reapplied every few hours. Sunscreensare less visible on the skin and are designed to protect against UVA, UVB or both types of ultraviolet rays. However, they do allow some radiation through and need to be reapplied every few hours, because their ingredients break down after exposure to sunlight. If you use sunscreen, choose one with a high SPF, apply generously and reapply every two to three hours.

After a little research on the web, I found that the following sunblocks were well-rated by reviewers/consumers:

  1. Coppertone Sport Sunblock –
  2. Coppertone Sport Sunblock Gel, SPF 30, 6-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 2)

  3. Neutrogena Active Breathable Sunblock –

Neutrogena Active Breathable Sunblock Lotion SPF 45 – 4 Oz
