Where To Apply:
Whenever you wear sunscreen, which, primarily depending on the person, should be worn at any point your body and skin may be in the line of direct sunlight, where on your body should it be put on?
The most important place would be all over your face, even your ears; you really don't want to allow any parts of your skin to be the victim of overexposure to sunlight. Your neck and hands are also a good place to cover; it also depends on what you're wearing. If you're wearing long-sleeved clothing, or if you're wearing tank tops depends on what you should cover. If your shoulders, chest, or legs are exposed, tend to them as well.
If you're wearing makeup, keep in mind that you should put your sunscreen on prior to it; the makeup won't interfere but be sure that the sunscreen is directly on your skin.
