Think of it this way: If you have an 8 oz. tube of sunscreen, that’s eight applications. That tube should last you two or three trips to the beach, max—not the whole summer, and certainly not two summers in a row!
Fact #6: Reapply, reapply, reapply!
Okay, so we already mentioned this in Fact #3—but it bears repeating. No sunscreen in the world is going to keep you protected unless you’re diligent about reapplying every two hours. It can be tricky during the workday (who wants to slather additional sunscreen on top of their makeup?) but there are ways to get the protection you need without disturbing your foundation and concealer. Brush-on powder sunscreens can be swiped on right over your makeup to help boost your SPF before you head out for your lunch break.
