Top 6 Reasons to Use Sunscreen

By now you’ve probably seen that the Birchbox editors are über vigilant about sun protection. Since you’ve been following along closely, we’re sure that you’re now wearing SPF everyday, right?

All joking aside, we know that despite the best of intentions, sometimes we’re all a little guilty of skimping on the sunscreen—especially if we don’t know how much formula to use or how often to reapply. (Hint: you need more for your entire body than you’d think).

We quizzed our Birchbox staffers to test their sunscreen IQs, and realized that we could all use a quick refresher; thus the handy tips in the video above!  I know I’ll be applying it more liberally and more often. Since I worry about clogged pores, I always look for an oil-free formula made especially for the face. I love using COOLA Classic SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face because it’s super lightweight and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. Now go have some fun in the sun (but remember that sunscreen!)
