Don’t restrict sunscreen to your face

Sunscreen is for any part of your body that’s exposed to the sun, not just your face. Don’t forget the back of your neck, the top of your ears, and the backs of your hands. “It’s especially important to use sunscreen if you’re using a retinoid or vitamin C product which can make your skin more sun sensitive,” says Dr. Wu. Board-certified dermatologist Cheryl Karcher, MD, applies sunscreen to her hands and arms in summer, which she doesn’t always do in winter. “If I’m wearing a skirt or shorts, I apply sunscreen to my legs as well,” she says. “I prefer the thinner chemical sunscreens for daily use as the zinc and titanium oxide sunscreens tend to be a little thick.” One of her personal favorites is Elta MD Clear SPF 46.
