Hi everybody,

I'm looking for a sunscreen that will still allow me to get a tan because I want to even out my skin color on my upper body. Does any one know of any brand that I could find at a conventional store? Because I honestly have never used any.

Thank You

So, you're looking for a sunscreen that is not effective? Like Coppertone of olden times?

A product with a lower spf number will allow for more tan than one with a higher number.

We use Coppertone Sport lotion SPF 30 and it's worked very well for us. We still get color, but we don't burn. EWG has a list of sunscreens rated by safety. Hope that helps some.
