How much sunscreen do I need to use on my face?

Importance of Sunscreen

Overexposure to the sun is well known to cause major skin damage, and this fact can make the seemingly easy action of applying sunscreen seem daunting.

Because most people don't use enough sunscreen, unfavorable sunburns and tanning can occur even when sunscreen is used. Many of us have also been taught to only wear sunscreen when we are outdoors. But it is crucial that we wear sunscreen at all times, whether it is winter or summer, or if we are indoors or outdoors. Slathering on sunscreen at all times is just a good idea. A 2016 study linked a history of severe sunburn to a greater chance of developing skin cancer later.

One of the most effective ways to protect your skin is by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays. 

How much?

For the face, as a general rule of thumb, sunscreen should be the last step to your skin-care routine and you should apply two fingers worth (use your index and pointer fingers) to your face and neck.
