You're Forgetting to Use SPF If you have fine hair or a distinct part, then your scalp is going to be susceptible to sunburn -- especially since it's the one spot that even the most diligent SPF-wearers often forget. "The best thing is to wear a hat," says Fusco. "If that's not possible, I tell people to apply sunscreen to a makeup wedge and press it onto their part and hairline." If you're worried about your hair looking greasy, choose an oil-free formula or try a powder version like Brush on Block Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30, $24.95. It's worth making the extra effort, since a burnt scalp can lead to peeling, flaking, and dryness -- not to mention the skin cancer risk.
