Wash your hands after applying sunscreen ...

Sunscreen can irritate your eyes! To reduce the chance of inadvertently transferring sunscreen to your eyes, always remember to wash your hands well after applying sunscreen. Concentrate the cleansing on the palms, and try not to wash off sunscreen on the back of your hands, since these areas are prone to greater levels of sun exposure and require the coverage.

It is best to avoid letting young children apply sunscreen on themselves, rather, adults should provide assistance to ensure even and adequate coverage. If you are engaged in physical activities or exercise, try to use sunscreen sticks or those formulated for the lips on your forehead, because their thick consistencies will make them less likely to seep into your eyes through perspiration.
