How much sunscreen should you use?

Most people don’t use enough sunscreen – it is estimated that people generally use about 20% of the sunscreen necessary to protect themselves from the sun’s rays. And if you aren’t putting enough on yourself, do you think you’re putting enough on your children?

The FDA recommends using an ounce of sunscreen on your body for adequate coverage. One ounce is about the size of a shot glass or enough to fill the palm of your hand. That might seem like a lot, but when it comes to protecting yourself or your family from skin cancer and premature aging, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Here’s some good news: When you use a mineral sunscreen like Goddess Garden Mineral Sunscreen, you may notice that you get better coverage than you do with conventional sunscreens. That means your sunscreen will last longer, but it’s just as effective as those smelly chemical-based brands.

When using a broad-spectrum sunscreen like Goddess Garden, remember that it becomes effective immediately, while conventional sunscreens take 20 to 30 minutes to become effective. Also keep in mind that all sunscreens need to be reapplied after swimming or excessive sweating. Goddess Garden’s sunscreens are water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and give you the protection you need without harmful chemicals.

Keeping in mind the guidelines above will ensure that you and your family have plenty of fun in the sun as the weather warms up – and you won’t hear a peep of whining about itchy, painful sunburns!
