Summer Health Tip: Apply Sunscreen When You're Nude

Summer Health Tip: Apply Sunscreen When You're Nude

When applying sunscreen, you want to make sure you cover every inch of your exposed flesh to protect yourself from sunburn and skin cancer. If you apply lotion when you're already dressed, you tend to miss spots since you want to avoid getting lotion on your clothes. I highly suggest applying sunscreen before dressing, to ensure that every part of your body, neck and feet included, is protected. Not only will you be fully protected from the sun's harmful rays, but you'll also avoid those bizarre streaky blotches on your skin that you get when you accidentally overlook certain spots. Remember it takes an ounce to cover your body completely. For a visual reference, that is about the size of a shot glass.

I do this right before I go to the beach/pool! That way I know that I have one good solid layer of sunscreen on before I go out for the day.

All suncreams i've tried stay sticky even when you rub them in. Does anyone know any ones (available in the UK) that don't? Thanks :)

^have you tried the Neutrogena one? That and La Roche-Posay are the most neutral sunscreens I've tried. Good advice, but think of letting dry before you put your clothes on! I didn't think of it last week when I was getting ready for a job interview, and got white marks all over my black top.

In a perfect world, I'd do this, but usually I don't remember to. I should keep a bottle of sunscreen in the bathroom by the lotion so I remember...especially in the summer!
