Give Zinka Nosecoat a shot for better sun-block protection
With sunscreen's protection factor under question, maybe it's time to look at something stronger and go for the sun-blocking power of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
Still the most effective protectors from the sun's damaging UVA and UVB rays, those are the key ingredients in Zinka Nosecoat ($7), the waterproof sun block that first appeared on beaches in the zany 1980s, and is enjoying a comeback thanks to a combination of today's active, outdoorsy lifestyles and ozone depletion providing extra danger from the sun.
Zinka allows you to paint your face in seven colors: hot pink, Day-Glo green, electric blue, coral, lavender, original lifeguard white or flesh tone.
