Yes, I do. I wear SPF50 daily. Burning isn’t really an issue in the UK, so I use sunscreen to to prevent from skin cancer and prevent premature aging. 90% of aging skin is caused by sun exposure.This includes wrinkles, pigmentation and sagging. Looking youthful and healthy is important to me.

Also, I don’t understand the logic of only wearing sunscreen on holidays or in sunny weather. UVA rays are present all year round. Whilst these rays do not cause burning, they do contribute to skin cancer and photo damage. All the skin damage you young ones get now will show up in your 40s and 50s.
Does your sun screen protect against UVA? Because not all do.

I used to wear moisturiser with SPF on my face but they have changed the formula, which made it greasy, so I now get the non-SPF version. I don't wear sunscreen on other parts of my body as I wear long sleeves and trousers.

Yes, that’s really important. Some sunscreens have such low UVAPF/ PPD that they shouldn’t even be on the market. I use the La Roche Posay Shaka Fluid, which has one of the highest PPD ratings of all sunscreens. Garnier have a much cheaper dupe of this that is less greasy.

Unfortunately, I don’t think there is a light or totally non-greasy sunscreen that has both high UVA and high UVB protection.

La Roche Posay has an “anti-shine” sunscreen. But kinda expensive for a small bottle. It’s on sale at Superdrug atm.

How do you have any vitamin D If you wear sun cream all the time? You might be saving yourself from skin cancers but then you might get osteoporosis instead.

From a pill? There’s not enough sunshine in the Autumn, Winter and early Spring months to get adequate vitamin D in the UK anyway. The NHS recommend a supplement to be taken between October and March. So even without sunscreen, you won’t get enough vitamin D.

Nope, only when it’s very sunny. Wearing sunscreen every day isn’t going to reduce the chance of getting skin cancer in any significant way; the majority of people never get skin cancer anyway and they don’t wear sunscreen.

Everyday without fail. It doesn't even matter I'm not leaving the house! I have noticed huge differences since I've started- any acne scars I get disappear significantly faster, and are much less pigmented (I imagine due to reduced sun damage). I think it's worth it long-term, and everyone should invest in one.

Vitamin D pills give you far less than you would get from even a few minutes of sunshine. A 1000 IU pill is only 4 minutes of sunshine. They have little effect also because it is unnatural for the body to absorb vitamin D from the diet.
My lecturer said you do not need vitamin D pills in the winter if you have enough from the summer and also said that since it's a hormone (rather than a proper vitamin) it is involved in regulation of your internal clock, so taking it in winter might confuse that system.
I used to take vitamin D pills often but having done my reading I see no point, I think they are just a ploy by the big pharma for extra profit.
Anyway, I'm not saying don't wear suncream, just that you do need some sun....

Olay Day Fluid Moisturiser, SPF 15. Use it on my face every day without a problem; I've even had eczema on my face, but it didn't exacerbate it.

Make sure you try the right one (in the white bottle with the black lid). I once bought the Total Effects, but found it too greasy for me.

I have rosacea so wear factor 50 on my face every day, otherwise my cheeks turn bright red with itching and stinging.

Nah, I just always assumed being brown meant I've got my own sunscreen.

Every day in the summer I wear a high SPF moisturiser. I know I should wear sun protection year round, but I hate how SPF products feel.
