i understand your concern about skin .
sunscreen with 50 SPF and water resistant is ideal for you
you can you neutrogena sunblock 50 spf .
apply every 2-3 hours.
it will protect your skin to major extent.
still you may find some tanning .
wearing wide brim hat will help you.
better to consult dermatologist to have detail skin analysis.
