Store sunscreen in a cool & shaded place. Do not leave it in a vehicle for a long period of time. The active ingredients in sunscreen begin to break down in the presence of heat or light.
Apply spray sunscreen in a well-ventilated room or outdoors (in a wind-protected area). To apply to face and to ensure even application, spray sunscreen in your hand, and then rub on.
