Don't forget! 5 spots ya might miss when puttin' on sunscreen

 
Applying sunblock can take up lotsa precious outside time, and it’s tempting to just slap some on, grab your shades, and go. There are a few tricky spots that’ll come back to haunt (or hurt or itch) you later, though.

 

El Sol Isn’t for the Soles of Your Feet

Walking around, you never even see these babies, but remember when you’re laying on your stomach to tan that your back isn’t the only part you’re showin’. If you end up burning your feet, you won’t be heading out to meet the gals for a night on the town any time soon. Since wiping your hands all over the bottom of your feet is kinda gross, try a spray that’ll keep your soles safe and your hands germ-free.

Partburn—yowtch!

That white, flaky stuff in your hair over the summer is prob not dandruff – have you checked to see what color the part in your hair is? Chances are, it’s red. If you’re not into hats, make sure you’re gettin’ some invisible protection for between your lovely locks. Check out Sundition for a scalp saver that won’t get ya greasy or leave you smelling sicky-sweet for the day.

Reverse Shorts Tan

You’re out by the pool and you think Man, I gotta get rid of this shorts tan. The fastest way is to skip the sunscreen on the blinding white tops of your thighs, right? Wrong. It looks a little silly when you’re in a bikini and you take your shorts off to show another pair of red ones underneath. Try a light sunscreen that doesn’t feel sticky but that won’t wash off when you go for a dip in the pool.

Sounding Out Sunburn

Usually your hair covers your ears, so you’d think you could skip on the sunblock. Swimming can leave you with some pretty crazy ‘dos sometimes, though, that’ll do worse for your ears than just making them look big. Best to keep from cringing every time you pop on some shades. Just keep a sunscreen roller in your purse for those days when you’re strollin’ in the sun with your chicas or picnicking with your BF.

Red Eye

Putting on makeup can get kinda tricky when it hurts to touch your skin, so watch out for the area between your eyes and your ‘brows. You prob don’t wanna be wearing red eye shadow for the rest of the summer. Try a sunscreen stick that is fragrance- and oil-free, so it won’t sting your eyes.
