I also pack sunscreen and various clothing items to protect me from sun damage (i.e. skin cancer). In Australia it seems like every other person has been in for skin cancer surgery, so I try to take some protective measures to make me feel a little bit safer, especially on long rides.

I use Neutrogena's Dry Touch 30spf (higher ratings aren't really necessary). A little dab goes a long way, and it goes on dry.

I also wear long sleeves in the morning when I'm on an all-day ride. I have discovered I tend to burn between 10 am and noon, more than any other time of day.

I use sunglasses and a helmet with a visor to provide some extra shade and protection to my face.
