Unless you want your skin to suffer, don’t make these sunscreen mistakes. They’re pretty easy to remember so don’t mess it up!
You Don't Apply It On Your Ears And Other Important Areas
While you’re probably already applying sunscreen onto important parts like your neck and the nape of your neck, you’re probably forgetting to apply sunscreen on your ears and your hands.
These places are just as important when you’re trying to protect your skin from the sun so, make it point to apply sunscreen onto these areas in the morning.
You Don't Reapply
Contrary to popular belief, sunscreen doesn’t last you the whole day.
Sweat and natural oxidation can lead to your sunscreen degrading throughout the day. If you’re going to be in the office most of the time, remember to reapply just before you head out.
You Don't Apply Enough
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you ought to be applying about a teaspoon of sunscreen onto your face (not including your neck).
You Use Body Sunscreen On Your Face
Facial sunscreen isn’t a marketing ploy, it’s an actual requirement.
Facial sunscreen is usually formulated differently and tends to dry faster as compared to body sunscreen.
You Still Spend So Much Time Outdoors
Despite how high the SPF is on the bottle, you really shouldn’t stay more than 30 minutes in the sun without shelter.
