The Sunscreen Rule

I'm introducing a weekly post - A Tuesday tip! Something short and sweet and hopefully, helpful.

Since it's Skin Cancer Awareness Month I'll be focusing on tips surrounding sunscreen, and busting some sun-based myths. Off we go!

One of the biggest mistakes I see clients making is not wearing enough sunscreen. Yep, I'm talking to you - the dabbers, the dotters, the "it's in my makeup" folks. How much sunscreen do you need to use to get the listed coverage? The sunscreen rule is actually quite simple.

Spread a thin line of sunscreen along the first 2 fingers of your hand. That's enough to cover both your face AND neck.

And no, what's in your makeup is not enough. Think about how much foundation that would be if you apply the above rule...(gross!) and when was the last time you applied foundation all over your neck?

That's it, easy peasy. Now you're covered.
