What Is the Right Way to Put Sunscreen on Your Face?

Sunscreen is critical for anti-aging and avoiding the need for skin cancer treatment. Also, although you should wear it year-round, this type of skin protection is even more important during the summer. Watch this video to learn the right way to apply sunscreen to your face, as demonstrated by a dermatologist.

When selecting a sunscreen, choose one that is zinc or titanium oxide-based and with an SPF of 30 or higher. Then, apply your sunscreen approximately 30 minutes before you plan to head outside and after washing your skin with a quality cleanser. Use a generous amount and do not forget to apply sunscreen to your neck, upper chest, and hands.
