    I use Walmart's Equate spray on 50 SFP. It is not sticky after it drys in about 2 minutes.

    This.

    I'm very fair skinned and despise putting on sunscreen (not a good way to be). That being said, I swear by the Banana Boat CoolZone spray sunscreen. I just spray a couple coats on (to make sure I didn't miss anything) and it works like a charm. Never have to get your hands all slimy and sticky either. The cooling effect is noticeable too.

    I dislike applying sun screen, so never do. But the sun is never a problem for me. I use a baseball cap under my helmet, with a bandana underneath it, covering the back of my neck and ears. Long sleeved shirts, and my legs are usually but not always covered. If hot, I douse myself with water. I'm comfortable and burn free.

    Geez, I know it probably doesn't get as hot as here but doesn't wearing all that stuff on your head make you sweat like crazy? Sunscreen seems a heckuva lot easier/more comfortable....

    I wear a headsweats skullcap - very light wicking mesh that protects top of ears and back of neck along with areas exposed by helmet vents. It is a light color and is comfortable.
    Keeping the sun off the skin helps if the fabric is very light and wicking. There are long-sleeved jerseys and sun sleeves for that purpose. I can't vouch for them, but some of my friends do so even on hottest days.
    I normally wear sunscreen only if I will be out for several hours 10am-4pm. Usually I avoid this timeframe as it's too dang hot. I use a spray, either Neutrogena or one of the other high SPF ultra sweatproof types.
    Otherwise I take no extra precautions. My skin tans easily without burning.

    Craft Arm Coolers, and Sugoi Leg Coolers are my preferred 'sunscreen'.
