If you thought the sun screen in your make-up was enough, think again. The Wall Street Journal says people who think they are wearing the proper sunscreen daily typically apply only 1/3 to 1/2 of the recommended amount.

New labels on sun screen bottles will be the first step, rolled out on June 18th.
