Summer Sunscreen Rules to Live By

Get smart about the sun! Follow these sunscreen rules.

1. Apply early and often. Lather on water resistant sunscreen 30 minutes before going to the beach or outside. Reapply every 2 hours.

2. Coat yourself. It takes about 9 teaspoons to cover your body from head to toe with sunscreen.

3. Check your head. The most commonly missed spots are: temples, ears, back of the neck, top of the feet and hands.

4. Add it to your makeup routine. Before putting on makeup, apply 1 teaspoon of sunscreen to your face, neck and ears.

5. Stick to the magic number. No matter which brand you choose, make sure your sunscreen is at least SPF 30.

Don forget to take care of your lips too!
