- How much sunscreen should you use on your face?
By now, we all know that wearing sunscreen every day is a non-negotiable regardless of the weather — yes, even on rainy days and indoors. But how well your skin is going to be shielded from the harmful UV rays depends on both the SPF formula and the amount of product you apply. And, to be honest, all of us should probably be a little more generous with our application.
To reap the full benefits of your sunscreen, you’ll need to use approximately 2 milligrams per square centimetre of skin – for the average person that’d be around 1/4 teaspoon for the face alone, 1/2 teaspoon for both the face and neck. That's the only way to ensure your skin is fully protected.
