SUNSCREEN
Hi!

I use a good sunscreen on my face and neck everyday. I am Asian. I need another sunscreen for my hands and legs because I tan very easily and I don't need to. My hands are gone much darker than my face. I need a sunscreen that applies easily everyday and won't leave a white film on my skin.

The potent sunscreens all leave a film on the skin. But these preparations are nowdays refined and most persons find them acceptable. I suggest you use one containing titanium oxide. The alternative is to use a chemical sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB light. Your pharmacist can advise you about the best one to use.
