spectrum, uva, uvb, coverage for wrinkles as well as skin cancer. you want to say water resistant. 40 to 80 is the most you can buy for that. there's no such thing as a waterproof sunscreen anymore. >> sometimes we have the right product but we still do things in the wrong way. what are some mistakes we make when we're putting this stuff on. >> the biggest mistake is people forget to put on sunscreen. you need to apply it at least 2 ounces, which is a shot glass of sunscreen to cover your whole body. you want to apply 15 minutes before you go outside. you cannot do it one minute before you jump in the pool or you're already outside. you want to rub it in. if you don't rub it in, sunscreen is missing products. >> we're going to go down. are these spray on? >> spaces are really great because they are super convenient. the problem with spaces, when you spray them, you see it goes all over the place. >> yeah. >> then sometimes you miss areas.
so you want to spray it but also want to rub it in. my sort of personal favorite is to take a spray that's more of a lotion and spray it on and then rub it in so you can see where it's been. >> i like it. combination of these spaces together are great. people love them and they are super fun. >> this is a cool one i've not seen yet. we're going to show you, reveal, this is a new one. it is mousse. suntan mousse lotion. >> yeah, suntan mousses are really fun. you put them on. you rub them together, spread them on. they are not greasy. they disappear really easily. so you have a lot on there. we can take this and rub them what i'm loving about all these products, they are products you can use on any part of your body. >> okay. >> we have primers. you put it under your makeup. apply a tinted moisturizer that has sunscreen on it so you don't need to apply makeup. then fabulous new makeup setting
sprays. you can spray these directly onto your face and apply your spf right over your makeup. they don't ruin it. >> on top of your makeup. >> correct. the better part, these are fantastic, for a person starting to lose a little hair and don't want to ruin their hair, you can spray it directly into your hair. feels like a hairspray but has a great spf in it. loving that. >> lips are something that's very vulnerable. >> there's no melanin, they don't protect. there's a high risk for skin cancer. you can't just apply lipstick. you have to wear ones with spf. >> which ones? >> they have spf, great colors, they have spf. then there are also lip glosses that they make. color science makes a fabulous one and has spf. if you put a lip gloss on your lips without spf it's like applying baby oil and you can burn. >> like they did in the old days. not great. so you have some easy stuff. >> people complain sunscreen is hard to get rid of. if you feel a little greasy and
want to get rid of it, use makeup removing oils. you rub them on and it dissolves. use these cleansing facial wipes. >> easy to carry in your purse. >> it can make a huge difference. >> all you have to do is wear the right clothes. >> this clothing is actually specially designed to block out the sun. made by lands end, other products, you don't have to wear sunscreen. the sun cannot penetrate. if you wear a white t-shirt you're only getting spf of 7 and you can burn quite easily. >> all great advice, doctor. as always. just ahead, move over, man caves. why she sheds are all the rage. first, this is "today" on nbc. that's how the pros do it. ♪
