We discover what exactly you should do to keep your skin flawlessly protected without risking your health! sunblock and legs Experts recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. In order to get the full effect of the lotion, you need to use the right amount. Research states most people use between 25% and 75% of the required lotion amount on their skin, reducing it's effectiveness. So here is the golden rule for getting enough: The Shot-Glass Rule A simple rule to remembering how much lotion to use, is to imagine you're filling a shot glass. The total amount of lotion to cover your body should be equivalent to one full shot, generously poured. You should be taking a shot, or reapplying this amount to your skin every two hours. Picking The Right Screen If you're working out, choose an SPF of at least 30 because sweat will wear away the lotion. You should also looking for a dual lotion that protects against UVA and UVB rays. Another bonus is finding a lotion that has antioxidants to help protect your body from "free radicals" which cause cancer. Make sure every area of your skin is protected right up to your lips. Lip balms with SPF 15 are available in many flavours and shades. Many BB creams and concealers also possess SPF ratings if you don't want to smear sunscreen over or under your makeup. If you're using a bottle of sunscreen that you've had lying around, don't forget to check the expiration date. The active ingredients in sunscreen can get old and deteriorate, becoming less effective or even obsolete. Share with us your sun protection secrets!
