These skin care tips will show you how not to be a repeat offender of sunscreen slip-ups
Mistake: Not using enough sunscreenSolution: Donít scrimp or be stingy with the sunscreen -- be sure to cover your entire body. Evans has a simple pocket change MO for application (note: these are general amounts -- use more if you're Kobe-sized): Put at least a nickel-sized amount in the palm of your hand and apply it to your face -- not pea or pearl size, says Evans. Then, if you're body is going to be exposed, use a quarter sized amount for your torso, a nickel for each arm, a quarter for your back and two quarters for your lower extremities. And don't forget your feet and toes.
