Despite using 45 SPF sunscreen, sometimes I still get red after being in the sun. Do I need a stronger sunscreen?

How sunscreen is used is as important as is the SPF (Sun Protective Factor). First, sunscreen should be applied thirty minutes before exposure to the sun since it is not effective for the first one-half hour.  Secondly, apply sunscreen generously.  Thirdly, reapply every two hours or more frequently, especially if you perspire heavily or go into the water.

I have had a mole on my face for several years which I have always disliked. However, in the past few months, it has gotten larger and darker. It is very unattractive. Would my insurance consider the removal cosmetic and not pay for it?

A skin lesion which becomes larger and darker should definitely be removed.  It is very unusual for insurance companies to deny coverage for removal of skin lesions, and this is especially true if there has been any change in the appearance.

Sun Exposure

Research performed on rats may revolutionize the world of self-tanning creams.  The tanning creams available today are typically dyes, offering no protection from the dangers of sun exposure.  The new cream developed in the rat lab actually reduces the incidence of skin cancer by turning the skin a golden bronze, without sun exposure.  The pigment of the skin is changed in much the same way as occurs with a sun tan.  The cream has only been tested in mice, so the safety in humans is completely unknown. This may be the next generation of skin tanners; but for the present, continue to get color from a bottle, not the sun.
