The fairer you are, the higher the SPF you should use. Being amongst the pale, I usually go with a SPF 60 and there are lots to choose from this year - here are a few of my faves:
Bioderma Photoderm SPF 60 Cream - 40ml - $20 - offers maximum photo-protection for skin intolerant to all types of sunshine especially for those of us that are very fair with freckles - with an invisible moisturizing, non-oily texture that is highly resistant to water and sweat with an ideal UVA/UVB ratio that provides the same level of absorption across the entire UV spectrum as well as the highest level of protection on the market to protect against extreme sun exposure and help prevent benign summer light eruption. Fragrance free and hypoallergenic.
