Memorial Day begins the unofficial start of summer and the official tanning and sunburn season begins. So it is prudent to lather up to keep your skin from prematurely aging, protect it from harmful UV Rays and keep your skin youthful and healthy.
Let's start with the best value on the market.

Banana Boat is the one I like to wear when I teach outdoor FitCampNYC classes.
The best is
Spray on brands
(The aerosol is not made to be inhaled, please do not spray on your face! Spray on to your hands and apply to your face. )
How much do you need?

Keep this knowledge handy throughout the summer and enjoy your Memorial Day!
