With warmer weather and longer daylight hours here, it is essential to keep ourselves shielded from harmful UVA/UVB rays when going about during our day. It is good practice to wear at least an SPF 30 or higher year round on any areas that will be exposed to sunlight (face, neck, chest and hands). For a day spent at the beach where the entire body will be exposed, a full shot glass (1 oz) worth of sunscreen is recommended, remembering to reapply approximately every two hours or after getting out of the water or periods of excessive sweating.
