8 Places You Need To Apply SPF (But Might Be Forgetting)

We don’t need to lecture you about the importance of sun protection (skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States!), but we are here to make sure that you don’t leave any spots unprotected. Aside from limiting your time in the sun between 10am and 2pm and wearing a long-sleeve shirt, pants, a hat, and sunglasses whenever possible, you need to diligently apply sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. 

Take on the sunshine while keeping your skin protected, safe, and healthy! Keep reading to check out the eight places you need to apply SPF, but might be forgetting.

1. Hands
Don’t forget the top of your hands—and make sure to reapply SPF each time you wash them. 

2. Scalp
Not wearing a hat? Make sure to apply sunscreen on your part and anywhere not fully covered by your hair.

3. Ears
Don’t forget your earlobes! 

4. Knees
Sunscreen applied to your knees can easily rub off, be sure to reapply.

5. Neck
Make sure to extend sunscreen application from your face to your neck and décolletage to prevent signs of premature aging.

6. Eyelids
If you don’t plan to keep your sunglasses on, don’t miss this delicate spot. 

7. Lips
Keep your pout moisturized and covered in sunscreen or a lip balm with SPF.

8. Feet
Sandals aren’t sun protection! Apply sunscreen to the top and bottom of your feet and on your toes.
