"Always wear sunscreen" is a piece of advice we'll never stop dishing out. Use about a shot glass' worth from head to toe and reapply every two hours or more often if you're really working up a sweat. And remember: toweling off your sweat can mean wiping off SPF, too. To avoid this, top off with a hat to protect your scalp and shield your eyes from the sun.
