I know it's January, but many peppers lists don't include suncream, April last year was warm and if you are stockpiling for a few months some of those will be summer and worthwhile including.

It's a good call. I burn if I look at a lightbulb grin. Only joking a bit.

I would also add a wide brim sun hat, a light, loose fitting shirt and cotton/linen trousers. Clothes don't get used up like lotions grin

Whilst we're on the subject of the great outdoors, don't forget insect repellant, gaters (if hiking/camping) and a pack of those tick removal twisty thingies... you can get them from pet shops, vets and Amazon for about £3. It's not just a "prepper" thing, it's everyday general preparedness thing like having a first aid kit. They'll also save you about £12 if you have to take your pet to the vet to have a tick removed grin

Is there any sun cream that has a longer BBE date than usual?

I had skin cancer so wear all year round, but natural ones I usually have don't last long. Already have variety of hats and spf clothing.
Don't most last a year after opening.

cotton gloves are useful too if you have to keep covered up due to sun in summer and there is no cream. Mum has had cancer and is allergic to suncreams. She does not go our so much now though.
