43. Summertime blues
We all know how important it is to apply sunscreen when heading out to the sun. As much as we’d love to get our tan on, staying under the sun without proper protection can be extremely dangerous to our skin and to our health. We hate being the ones to say this, because we love hitting the beach as much as the next person, but it might require more preparation than you thought.
While most of us do acknowledge the importance of sunscreen, the problem is we don’t really know how much of it we need to use. The truth is, there’s no such thing as too much sun protection lotion, and odds are, you’re not putting enough of it. If we want the sunscreen we’re applying to really kick in and be effective, scientists and dermatologists say we need to apply at least two or three layers – double the amount most people use.
