Dear Constant Reader,
Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!
Reapply your sunblock more frequently than you used to.
The SPF (sun protection factor) in sunblock refers to how long you can stay in the sun before you burn. If you usually burn after 15 minutes, 15 SPF will let you stay in the sun for almost four hours. However, most of us have spent over a year inside and our skin doesn’t have the tolerance for the sun that it did when it was getting more exposure. So, use that sunblock more often to avoid burning!
Personally I prefer a sunblock with zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide rather than a chemical sunscreen. Add a big hat, sunglasses, and a wrap for more protection, plus additional glamour.
