Sun exposure advice
Hello @januaryjane, I'm more sensitive to the sun when I'm driving in my car also. Here is a Mayo Clinic Newsfeed article on Sunscreen Season that you find helpful: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/page/cancer-education-center/newsfeed-post/sunscreen-season/ — In the comments, @merpreb mentioned a new sunscreen from Europe that can now be purchased in the US. It's called, Tinosorb. She may be able to offer some suggestions.
