Tips to Applying Sunscreen

We all love a pretty summertime tan (I mean, it solves ALL problems!) & being outdoors. But a few steps of protection will not only still give you that golden glow, but let you enjoy more time outside.

Choosing a Sunscreen

  • choose a broad spectrum coverage (protects from UVA & UVB rays)
  • SPF 30 or higher
  • water resistant

Applying Sunscreen

  • apply 15 min before exposure (it takes that long to sink in & offer protection)
  • 1 OUNCE is needed (think of a shot glass)
  • remember all the nooks-- behind/on your ears, tops of feet, lips, part line on scalp, etc

Wearing Sunscreen

  • reapply every 2 hours or after swimming & sweating
