Sunscreen may not be the first product that comes to mind during the Christmas season in the Northern hemisphere, but remember, south of the border it’s hotter than ever!
My mother-in-law sent my husband Reed this very suncreen: Coppertone Sport SPF 30. In Brazil, he needed sunscreen everyday, and he said that the spray-on kind was the best because it could be applied quickly, on the way out the door to an appointment. Be careful that you don’t buy an aerosol spray bottle, though, because they are not safe to ship to all places. A manual-pump sray bottle works just fine, and will keep your missionary protected. Also, consider sending an SPF sport lip balm. Any missionary serving in the sun will appreciate it!
