Well, we have been back from the beach for a while now and my skin is finally losing its beet red shade and has almost stopped peeling. I used sunscreen, but apparently not enough.
Don't forget your shot glass--of sunscreen, that is.
One shot glass full is about how much you should use to protect any exposed skin. If you're spending the afternoon outside, reapply every hour--especially if you're swimming or sweating a lot.
