            Hi! I would like to verify this info - glass blocks out UVB (causes ageing) rays but not UVA (causes tanning)? So if I'm not concerned with getting darker and keep my windows closed, I need not bother with sunscreen at home?

            Another problem - fluorescent lights and laptops. It seems that these emits UV rays too (*sigh* oh why, WHY must this be so?!). A, B or C? I tried googling for the type of UV radiation but only came up with endless suppliers of monitor filters.

            As you can see, I'm trying to get away from applying sunscreen, both face and body, when I'm home. Actually, I've never done so and am trying to make myself feel better for not doing so. The thought of suffocating my facial pores when I'm home is bad enough, but having a layer on arms and legs as well?! Imagine the discomfort! I usually dress very comfy in singlets and shorts at home and quite frankly, the thought of gooey sunblock on my body truly repels me. In fact, I don't even have the habit of using body sun protection when I'm outdoors too

              If you have a problem using sunscreen when outdoors, I'd think that UV rays from fluorescent lights, monitors, and TVs are the least of your worries. I don't use a monitor filter, though I do spend a lot of time in front of it. I'm not too worried though.

              You're quite right about glass - this should be included in the sunscreen pinup, I guess. If you sit near a window with direct sunlight all day, you should certainly use sunscreen. (Ditto if you drive everyday.) Otherwise I don't see the need for sunscreen indoors. YMMV, I'm just not that obsessive. Yet.

                just started using Clear water and find its great! does not feel heavy or greasy and gets absorbed into the skin quickly.

                              DDF Organic sunscreen SPF30

                              This is a relatively lightweight, mineral-only sunscreen, with micronised titanium dioxide and zinc oxide (for minimal white cast). Those of you interested might want to head over to Mango's essentialdayspa spree.

                                Big RAVE for L'Oreal UV Perfect Ultimate Protection Fluid with Mexoryl XL, SPF50/PA+++
                                I used this for 2 days and it feels really light weight and the best thing is that there is no whitish cast after application! ALL sunscreen products i have used so far left my face with a whitish cast. But this just disappeared into the skin, almost like a moisturiser. I was amazed at how quick the white fluid disappeared into the skin. As compared to the Pola and Shiseido ultralight sunblock i have used in the past, this one win hands down. This can be used as a moisturier for those with normal/oily skin, you don't have to use an additional moisturiser.

                                I'm using the non-tinted one.
