I use Anthelios 40 cream from La Roche-Posay, on face and neck. Because of its consistency, a small tube goes a long way. It’s not greasy. One of its ingredients is Ecamsule, aka Mexoryl. Combined with its other ingredients, I understand it gives excellent, very broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
L’Oreal (La Roche-Posay is one of its brands) patented ecamsule. Sunscreens with that ingredient have been available in Europe and elsewhere (but not the U.S.) since the 90s. It was approved for the U.S. in 2006. My oncologist uses it!
I’ve been wondering if the compression stocking I wear on my leg is enough protection from the sun or if I should put on sunscreen as well. It is already so difficult to get the stocking on without something sticky on my leg.
