Sunscreen vs a blanket

I've been using 30 SPF since SPF became a word.

It works most of the time.

Sometimes you gotta remember to put it on more than once.

When my kids were little (like under 3) I'd put 50 SPF on them.

But seriously, what is up with the 110 SPF?

Who uses this and why? If you need 110 SPF than I think you should stay indoors. I think you should be covered with a blanket at all times.

I imagine 110 SPF like an invisible shield that allows you to remain as pale as you were during the winter months. I mean once you get above 50 SPF does it even work?

Your thoughts?

I thought I heard a few years back that anything over 50 or 60 has the same coverage as the 50 or 60.

I use the SPF 50 and don't even go for those fancy brands. I use No-Ad and it works great. Never even knew that there was such thing as 110. I'm very fair skined and burn very easily and 50 is fine for me.
