3 Hacks to Prevent Sunburn
Here are 3 hints on how to protect yourself from the sun, straight from Family Circle...with my added comments.
- Put your sunscreen on 15 minutes before going outside. It takes time for it to be absorbed in the body. And put it on before adding your clothing. That way you won't miss any spots (burned shoulder straps, anyone?)
- Mist your hairline and scalp with spray sunscreen. My husband's thinning hair always leads to a burned head. That hurts.
- Don't count your makeup as part of your SPF protection. I use ingredients in Timeout4me's mineral makeup that provide an SPF of 30. That's not enough. Nor do we put our makeup on as heavily as we apply sunscreen. Don't neglect your face. No one wants to be sunburned or look like an alligator late in life.
There you have it! Go out and enjoy the summer.
