I’m diligent about SPF and sunscreen application but I’m so very guilty about reapplying it. What about you? How on top of reapplication are you?
So, here’s the deal. I know the most people are like, “SPF 30 is plenty!” by most people I mean my sister who’s a sun goddess and thinks the lower the better so she can maintain her healthy glow. Me? I’m a vampire. When I get outside and into the sun I hiss and backup into the shadows not to mention my body starts to smoke and if I’m really out in it too long I burst into flames.
No but seriously, I do try the avoid the sun when possible but I’m out in it a lot regardless because of that little thing called life. I tend to go with a higher level of SPF because it obviously means you can stay outside a lot longer.
If I’m at the beach or the pool I reapply sunscreen every two hours. It’s a lot easier to reapply sunscreen when you’re poolside because you don’t have a ton of makeup on your face. I don’t wear eyeshadow, mascara, etc to the beach or the pool. At best I apply some cheek stain and curl my lashes prior to heading to an outdoor activity like swimming or tennis. So, in these instances I’m quite diligent about application.
My problem is I never reapply sunscreen during say I normal work day or when I’m running around with friends on a Sunday from place to place like brunch, some shopping, to the movies. I mean, it’s a little hard to get through a work day, head out for the evening, and reapply sunscreen over your makeup.
Do you do it?
I’m guilty of not reapplying it.
How often do you reapply your sunscreen during an average day? Not one when you’re at the pool or the beach but just your average day.
Do you bother?
Or do you not do it at all?
