Applying Sunscreen – Put it where you want it – quick tip

Even the best sunscreens won’t give you the protection you want if you don’t:

a) Apply enough

B) Put it where you need it

Quick Tip

When applying sunscreen, squeaze the amount you need on the TOP of your hand rather than your palm.

Then scroop small amounts and apply to each area of your face and body like a dot to dot using the top of your had like a paint pallet.

Lastly, using the finger tips of the other hand, blend the dots together.

Using this technique you will get more even coverage, less sunscreen on your palms, & the top of one hand will already be done!

*Note – Discard sunscreen that seems to have separated or is past it’s expiry date. Heat and age causes sunscreen to degenerate, which means it does not work as effectively & you may not get the sun protection you expect.

About sunnysleevez

I'm a freckly red head, originally from London now living in LA with 2 pale children. Frankly with our coloring we have no business being such an outdoorsy family and living in southern California. I grew up in a time when factor 8 sun milk was considered the best protection available to combat the hot rays of a holiday in southern Spain, that lead to 3rd degree burns and the rest of the vacation spent in the shade of our apartment. As a family we love to be outside, going to the beach, camping, swimming & hiking. We can't completely avoid the sun (nor should we) but taking sensible measures to avoid unnecessary UV damage is a priority. How do we do that? By staying in the shade in the middle of the day, wearing sun protective clothing (that's why I created Sunny Sleevez), a broad brimmed hat, UV rated sunglasses, using chemical-free broad spectrum sun screen on exposed areas & eating a healthy diet with as few chemicals as possible & lots of antioxidants.
