Sunscreen Dos and Don'ts


Do put on more than you think you need. Most people don't apply enough sunscreen.


Too much is actually better than too little sunscreen when spending your time outdoors.

Do remember your skin needs.

If you have oily skin and are prone to acne, be careful about what sunscreen you apply to your face. Use an oil-free brand like Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry that is non-comdogenic and dries soft to the touch, instead of feeling greasy and moist like other brands.

Do use sunscreen every day.

No matter what the weather or time of year, your skin can benefit from the use of sunscreen. Sunscreen can help fight the signs of premature aging, making it a priceless addition to your beauty regimen.



Don't think price means better protection.

Less expensive sunscreen brands are just as effective as expensive designer brands. Choose an SPF of at least 30, and reapply as often as stated on the product.

Don't think that one application is enough.

Swimming, perspiration and exercising can diminish your sunscreen's protection. It's best to reapply throughout the day to avoid harmful exposure.
