1. An ounce of prevention literally.
You need to use a full ounce of sunscreen (think of a shot glass size) to adequately cover your entire body. For your face, a quarter-size dollop should do the trick. Also, use a sunscreen that has SPF 15 or higher. Need to stock up on sunscreen? Read the reviews.
2. Reapply every two hours.
UVA rays actually breakdown sunscreen, which is why you need to slather up every couple of hours.
3. Don’t overlook the nooks and crannies.
The most common places for skin cancer to pop up? Between your toes, on your scalp, and in your ears.
