Apply Sunscreen To Maximise Skin Protection

Apply sunscreen to maximize skin protection

We all know that sunscreen is our number one protection against the UV rays and premature skin ageing. So it is important to apply a sunscreen daily whether you are going out or staying indoors. Here are some pointers on how you should apply sunscreen.

  1. Apply sunscreen to dry skin at least 15 to 30 minutes before going out in the sun. This allows your skin to bond well with the product particles
  2. A blob of sunscreen about the size of a Marie biscuit is enough to cover all the exposed part of your body
  3. Regardless of your skin type, sunscreen should always be used over your moisturiser and under your makeup
  4. If you are too prone to sweating and have oily skin, then use the sunscreen directly on your face before putting on your makeup
  5. When applying sunscreen, pay particular attention to the face, ears, hands and arms, back and feet and coat your skin liberally
  6. Don’t forget that lips get sunburned too, so apply a lip balm that contains sunscreen, preferably with SPF of 15 or higher
  7. Re-apply sunscreen after swimming or if you have perspired heavily. Even water-resistant sunscreens may lose their effectiveness after some time in the water
  8. Sunscreens rub off as well as wash off, so if you’ve towel-dried, reapply waterproof sunscreen for continued protection
  9. In fact, even on days when there is no sun, you are not safe from the harmful rays, so it is a great idea to keep using a sunscreen throughout the year, every time you hit the road
