Are you applying your sunscreen correctly?

You may have heard the sunscreen rule that you need to apply about a shot glass full of product for your body and a half tablespoon for your face in order to get the full SPF protection promised on the bottle. This may be true, but that’s a lot of sunscreen to apply and often creates a layer so thick it’s almost impossible to rub in. Allure magazine offers a great tip that still allows you to be fully protected while avoiding the Casper look: apply your sunscreen in two coats (and there’s no need to wait for the first one to dry). “Similar to painting a house, two coats ensures you’re applying enough and getting even coverage.” Genius!
