Sunscreen application is a subject very dear to my heart. I am a firm advocate of using sunscreen everyday whether you leave the house or not. UVA rays are everywhere! I am also getting particular about the types of sunscreen or sunblock I use – broad spectrum that protects against UVA and UVB is the way to go these days. You can expect a few posts about the sun and sunscreen coming up. 🙂
Based on my personal experience, here are 7 parts of the body we tend to forget to apply sunscreen or sunblock on.
1. Apply sunscreen on the neck
Hands up everyone who forgets the neck? *sheepishly puts hands up* I’m perfectly guilty of forgetting to apply sunscreen on my neck. Many women tend to wear shirts or t-shirts that gape at the neck thereby exposing the neck and decolletege area to more sun. Is it any wonder our neck ages faster than our face? So, remember your neck the next time you apply sunscreen on your face.
2. Apply sunscreen on the back of the neck
Hair blocks the sunrays but not the UV rays. So, whether you have long hair or short hair, try to remember to apply sunscreen on the BACK of your neck. Tell this to the men in your life too. They are even more susceptible to the sun for those with short hair. Be warned though that sunscreen can stain shirt collars so you might end up with extra cleaning to do.
