How much sunscreen should I use?

Use plenty of sunscreen for optimal protection.

People usually use too much of a product - shampoo, hair gels and perfumes are classic examples. However, sunscreen and sunblock are the exception to the rule - people use much too little! You need more than you think you do. An average-sized person should use at least one ounce of sunscreen or sunblock - enough to fill a shot glass - on your body, and another teaspoon or two on your face.
