The Rules Of Sunscreen
Listen up dudes (er, dudettes).
We’ve been at the beach this summer and we’re not impressed.
No, no, it’s not Mother Earth disappointing us. She’s as epic as ever!
It’s your sunscreen habits. They suck. (#SorryNotSorry)
We’re not sure where you’ve been the last, oh, we dunno, 25 years, but there’s this thing called sun damage and it f’ing blows.
Trying to avoid wrinkles?
Don’t want to die of skin cancer?
Which is why you REALLY need to up the ante on the sunscreen situation. And we really mean: UP. THE. ANTE.
No, applying a bronzer with SPF at 8am doesn’t cut it. Nor does that light spritz of a spray sunscreen. You need to lather that shit on. In layers. On the regular.
Here’s what you need to know…
The Rules Of Sunscreen:
- Apply it every damn day. Even if it’s not sunny. Even if you don’t plan on spending much time outside. But DEFINITELY if it is sunny and you do plan on spending time outside. This isn’t rocket-science. It is science.
- Make sure it’s broad-spectrum and SPF 30 or higher.
- Apply it every 3 hours, like clock-work.
- Apply it after you get out of the pool or ocean or after sweating. (Yes, even if it says “waterproof” or “water resistant” or anything else that makes you think that you don’t need to reapply it after being wet.)
- Apply a lot of it. An ounce (or enough to fill a shot glass) each and every time. Yes, we know this is a lot of sunscreen. Yes, we know how many bottles this means you’ll go thru this weekend alone. Yes, we know this costs money. But what’s the price of being cancer-free? And let’s be honest: it pales (hehe) in comparison to the amount of money you spend on all your anti-aging products!
