How to Apply Sunscreen: The Devil is in the Detail

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Do you think you know how to apply sunscreen correctly? This is a tricky question considering that we ALL think we do. Trust me, I also thought I knew in the past.

Have you heard someone tell you “I got burned, even though I was wearing sunscreen”? or my all time favorite, “There was no sun and I still got burned”?

I hear them all the time and I decided to write this post and explain why you might feel that your sunscreen is not working; if you ever applied it in the first place ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Side note: You might be using it the wrong way!

I have my own experience with not applying sunscreen and it was horrible. You see, I ended up with second degree burns on my back. I was only able to sleep on my belly for 2 weeks (not a position I like). The memories of my best friends back then – Aloe Vera gel and yogurt are still very vivid. Since, then I have learnt my lesson.

Pin this in your Health Board for later!

I mean letโ€™s face it, it can be overwhelming. After observing plenty of such cases as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages, I have come up with some strategies to get past your fears and speak in the target language freely.

The feeling of being judged, fear of making mistakes, or sounding funny are legitimate points, however, they are preventing you from living up to your true potential.

Consider the tips below!

You have heard about SPF and most likely know the usual “the higher the number the better”. But what exactly does this mean?

The other day, I was having an argument with my sister about what exactly the SPF index means and how we should use sunscreen accordingly. It turns out that many people look for the SPF index on the label but that’s about it.

I asked a few of my friends and they also didn’t know anything else besides “the higher the number the better”.

After doing my research here is my post; where I explain what the SPF index is and why you should know about it.
