Then, once you're suited up, mist yourself with some sporty sunscreen, if you plan on going into the water. And then, tote the bottle with you when you head to the beach and/or pool. You'll want to reapply after 90 minutes. I'd say every 60 minutes if you're in and out of the water a ton. Oh, and make sure to hydrate from the inside out a.k.a. drink lots of water. You might be tempted to go for cocktail after tropical cocktail, but make sure to drink water alongside the cocktails. Baking in the sun and sweating will dehydrate you.
Then, once you've come back inside and you've showered and you're ready to relax for the evening, I suggest using some sort of after sun product. We brought both aloe and a super moisturizing after sun lotion. Your skin will lose a lot of moisture when you're baking in sunlight and soaking in salty water so it's important to replenish that lost moisture with some lotion. Also, if you've got any bit of burnt skin, this will soothe it.
On a side note, this bit's not really health related, but I wanted to share anyway. I brought these fun gold tattoos which we sported here and there, just for kicks.
By the way, take care of the rest of the skin on your face too. I like to use moisture masks and slather on deliciously thick lotions to really plump up my skin. And, a good round of exfoliation is great and gets rid of the dullness that seems to come with wearing sunscreen all day.
