You must be young! "Us "serious tanners of a certain age just don't want a burn or skin cancer, so we use Ombrelle. Doctor recommended it.
I thought tanning was "out"? I love to lay in the sun, but once you hit 40 the people who tanned alot in their youth start to show their age pretty quick, so if you are young, stay away from the baby oil( that's what those of us who wanted to bake brown used to use!) and keep your good looks!

You need a broad-spectrum sunscreen, one that blocks out the harmful burning, cancer causing UVA/UVB rays. You can still get nice color, but you will need something stronger than what you usually use at home, especially if you are fair-skinned.(SPF 45 for you) We bring 2 strengths of SPF lotion, We start with a factor 30 for the first couple of days, to prevent burning, once you get a base tan you can switch to a lower SPF - we go down to a 15. Nothing less. We like the brand No-Ad - waterproof, sweatproof.

My favorite suntan lotion is Coppertone Endless Summer. Comes in a light blueish bottle. It's very sheer and does not feel greasy at all. You can barely tell you have any on. I hate the lotions or oils that are super greasy and make you feel all slimy. This just rubs right in and is great. I also start out with 30 for my first 2-3 days in the sun and then switch down to a 15. Never use anything less than 15. I've had one too many things removed from my skin already due to sun damage and I'm only 28 (fair Irish skin!)....so be careful.
Oh also Neutrogena makes some great lotions too that aren't greasy. But they are the same price as the Coppertone Endless Summer and the bottle is smaller...so I go with the Coppertone. More for your money.

I also hate the feeling of sunscreen and hate having sunscreen seep into my eyes while wearing a snorkle mask. I like the Coppertone Gel and the Neutrogena "dry-touch" as well.
