Don’t forget your sunscreen ☀️😎

To most people, sunscreen seems pretty straightforward…

You put it on all the important spots, and boom:

You’re protected from the sun.

But every time I’m out at the beach, the park, or anywhere with sunbathers, I’ve noticed something disturbing:

9 out of 10 people don’t apply sunscreen correctly.

And although these people think they’re protected… it creates a false sense of security that ultimately causes more damage.

I recently learned a SUPER simple trick to apply sunscreen right, every time.

And I’m going to share that with you today.

But before I get into that, I want to explain just how sunscreen works to protect you from damage:

Basically, sunscreen is designed to block, or absorb and destroy UV radiation.

UVB rays are the radiation that causes sunburn and cancer, while UVA rays have shown to cause cancer and signs of aging like wrinkles.

Then we have the SPF (or skin protection factor) which tells you how long it will take for the sun to burn your skin.

For example:

SPF 15 means it will take 15 times longer for your skin to burn than if your skin were bare.

Now with all of that in mind, let me tell you what most people are doing wrong:

They’re not putting on ENOUGH.

(Meaning they’re not covering every inch of skin, or aren’t using a thick enough layer)

In all fairness… no one has ever really set a clear standard for how much sunscreen you need.

Which is why today, I’m going to teach you…

2-finger sunscreen trick

Most regulatory guidelines say you should use about 1 teaspoon of sunscreen for your face and neck.

But instead of grabbing your kitchen gear, all you need is your hand.

Simply use “two fingers” worth of sunscreen, and apply sunscreen down the length of your index and middle fingers.

Easy as that!

Just remember to do this trick every morning before you apply — even if it’s cloudy.

Your skin will thank you later.
