    As a redhead & outdoor sports person, I have long needed to be mindful of protecting myself from the sun's harmful effects. I found colored/tinted zinc oxide years ago & have often used it on my ears, nose & lips to protect them but also to 'fly team colors'. I try to find new ones every year! Works like a charm!!!
