I am really fair skinned and have had serious sun/skin issues in the past. I sometimes wear a baseball cap but I wear a bucket hat too - it covers ears and partial neck.  When on the range w the bucket hat, I'm getting a lot of sweat on my eyes. It really makes my eyes water w the sunscreen. Anyone ever tried a headband under their hat? Just don't want to add another thing that gets hot (I'm in s Texas).
I use the bullfrog gel sunscreens because it doesn't seem to be greasy. I end up running my sleeves in my eyes but it rubs them raw.

Used bullfrog for years, switched to neutrogena.
Much better.
I'm in s go. And use it daily. 3 packs at Costco is the way to go.
Not perfect but better.

I use blue lizard suncreeen(the best) and wear a caddie hat with a sweat band that I made.

I am in Texas also. I can also reccommend Neutrogena (rec by my dermatololigist). She also rec putting the sunscreen on 30 min before I play, too let it soak in. I have had one basal cell cut off my forearm. I want to avoid any more. You may also want to talk to your dermatologist abour Vit B3 (Nicotinamide). It decreases the risk of melanoma by pprox 30%. Australian study. Also 5 FluroUracil (5FU) cream. Treats the AK (AktenicKetatosis). I put it on for a month and my head looked like I had shingles. Now I use it two time per week. If you are now thinking, this guy sounds like he is in medicine, you are correct.

Check with your dermatologist.

Zinc. Oxide. I'll never go back to non-zinc sunscreens. It's not greasy and it doesn't ruin clothes. I do LOVE the smell of Coppertone Sport (smells like summer in a bottle!), but I don't miss it ruining all my shirt collars.

I can't say what happens if you sweat and zinc oxide gets in your eyes...I wear buckets, visors, and caps and they usually keep the sweat contained for me.

Yeah stick to the popular surf lotions. They typically offer the best protection with sweat/water. Also they won’t stain your nice shirt collars like the cheaper brands. I really like Headhunter lifestyle line for sports. Also Shiseido WetForce is awesome.

The sunscreen im using currently makes my hands greasy and its hard to get off. The sunscreen also seems to come off when I sweat and I still get burned. I need a better sunscreen that does not make my hands greasy. Will have to check out some of the recommendations.

I don't have a big problem with getting burned but I do wear sunscreen.  I prefer the Coppertone Dry Oil Spray.  You pick the SPF that works.  Mine is pretty low.  It is not greasy, does not leave white residue, grass and crap does not stick to it.  And, never had issue with it staining my clothes.

I ordered some of the ThinkSports and I'm going to try the Nicotinamide. I believe my derm mentioned this before.

I use Elta MD sunscreen and it doesn't stain clothes or sting the eyes if you sweat a lot.  

I've also used one of those GUTR things when bicycling but never for anything else.  If you sweat that much golfing I'd wait for a cooler day.

Great product. This stuff really blocks everything (and it's very safe). Zinc oxide is the only way to go.

Zinc Oxide provides an actual physical barrier.  If it doesn’t have it it is an absolute and total waste.  I have found the most effective to be those located in “med spas” or dermatology clinics.  I really like this one.

I use Blue Lizard, and hasn't caused my any sweat issues, whereas other brands have. Granted, I've just recently started using it, but hopefully it continues

I rock a HALO skull cap under my hat or bucket hat and it works great for keeping sweat out of my eyes. It has a "gutter" for the sweat to run down and escape on the side of your head instead of your face.

Picked one up on amazon

https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They have a few different styles if your not into the full skull cap. Not to mention, if you wet it with cold water, it seems to cool you down as well.

Being bald, sweat has always been a big issue for me when it comes to hats and sunglasses on the course. Within 5 minutes of sweating, my hats would start soaking through and would in turn drip on my sunglasses. Constant wiping made it annoying and therefore I started looking for a solution. So far, this has been great.

I use this and it actually works really well. It's not greasy at all and it covers well.

I picked it up at Roger Dunn Santa Ana of all places. The proceeds apparently go to a charity.

You need a mineral suncreen. Try to avoid avobenzone and oxybenzone, I learned the hard way when my eyes started burning from them.

Blue Lizard is by far the best, but anything with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide will do well.
