How to apply aerosol sunscreen with Banana Boat

1. Apply sunscreen 20 minutes before sun exposure, this leaves you plenty of time to pack all your outdoor essentials.
2. Use aerosol sunscreen in a well-ventilated location and be careful not to inhale it while spraying!
3. Avoid using it in a windy area so you get more on your skin.
4. Hold the can approximately 15cm from your skin, apply generously to all exposed areas, rub into skin for even coverage and your skin should look wet after applying and avoid spraying in windy areas.
5. Don’t apply the aerosol sunscreen directly to your face-instead spray it on your hands before rubbing it in.
6. Remember to reapply sunscreen after 2 hours of sun exposure. You should also reapply after activities where it might wash, rub or sweat off like swimming, exercise or drying.
7. And don’t forget! Make sure you wear a t-shirt, hat and sunglasses, and always seek shade during the hottest parts of the day (10am-3pm).

Have fun and stay safe in the sun!
