Don't neglect these areas when applying SPF

You probably already know the catastrophic results of not applying SPF in some areas of your body, these are commonly neglected areas of your body you shouldn't forget when protecting your skin from the sun.

 Don't neglect these areas when applying SPF

Ears

The skin on your ears is very delicate, and it is actually a common area where skin cancer is developed. Make sure you apply SPF on your ears every day, all year round because they are as exposed as your face to the sun.

Neck

Ok, if you have long hair you might do away with applying sunscreen on the back of your neck, but your neck and chest should always be protected from UV rays.

Eyelids

Sunscreen should definitely be applied on the lids, and you should also wear sunglasses if you are going to be exposed to the sun for long periods – the skin on your eyes is super thin and it tends to wrinkle prematurely, make sure you protect it from further sun damage.

The top of the hands

Have you noticed that the top of the hands is an area where discoloration and sun spots concentrate? This is because most of us forget to apply sunscreen to this area. 

Feet

 On top of that, it is a common area to find skin cancer, because, yet again, we wear sandals in summer and our feet are left unprotected. 

Have you ever sunburnt your feet? I have, and I swear it is not pretty. On top of that, it is a common area to find skin cancer, because, yet again, we wear sandals in summer and our feet are left unprotected. Apply SPF to your feet and toes to prevent hyperpigmentation and serious skin conditions.
