7. Figure out how much sunscreen you need. We've heard the shot-glass rule, and that you're supposed to use a tennis-ball-size glop of sunscreen to cover your entire body. But lotions don't come out of the bottle looking like something you're supposed to hit over the net! Dr. Cordoro has helpful advice: "Use a tablespoon of cream on your face, neck, and chest to get the amount of protection the bottle claims to give." The same proportion goes for the rest of your body: Use two tablespoons for arms and about three for legs, for a total of six tablespoons. Don't forget to put lotion on the tips of your ears, the part of your hair, and between your toes.

My wife always carries around a big tube of sunscreen with her fashion beachwear. I think it's kind of funny, but she's always the most stylish one at the beach! http://www.tropicsunwear.com
