You're Doing It All Wrong!
Showering, brushing your teeth, applying foundation and 7 more daily beauty routines you're probably screwing up
The Fix: Be sure to check your bottle of sunscreen for two things: 1) The expiration date. If you can't find one, toss it out if you've had it for more than three years. 2) The SPF. If it's not a 30 SPF and broad spectrum, you're not getting the kind of coverage every dermatologist on earth recommends. Now let's talk quantity: chances are you're not using enough. A good application is one ounce (the amount in a shot glass), but everyone comes in different sizes. A good rule of thumb: whatever you think is a bit too much is probably right on the money. Even if you're fully, completely and thoroughly slathered, you're not 100 percent safe from those UV rays in the shade or even under your clothes (your clothing is only about SPF 4 to 9!), so apply sunscreen before you get dressed, and reapply at least every two hours throughout the day (more often if you're swimming).
