My name is Erin and I love to spend time outdoors in the sun!
I’ve spent most of my life living in Australia in an area that experiences a very hot dry summer with minimal ozone layer protection and now I’m living in the USA in an area with a very hot humid summer.
Sunscreen has always been a part of my life but now I’m married to a very fair skinned husband the need is more real than ever!
Why did I start TheBestSunscreens.com?
Over the years I’ve spent many hours researching sunscreens, trying to determine the best sunscreen for my particular needs at the time. This has ranged from a really high performing sunscreen (for the pasty white husband), a sunscreen for my face (that works well but doesn’t make me look like I’m covered in white zinc) or a sunscreen for my sensitive skin when we vacation in humid places (I am prone to developing severe heat rash!).
I have a university science background and work as a health professional. Despite this even I have found the amount of choice and information relating to sunscreens overwhelming at times. I hope that you will find all that you are looking for here in one place written in a simply (not too scientific!) way. Please feel free to contact me with questions and I welcome any feedback you may have.
Thanks for visiting my site. I wish you all the best in finding the best sunscreens for you and your family!
