Summer doesn't officially start until June 20th but it's already hot AF and, of course,  it's always sunny in El Paso so we El Chuco-ans go through a lot of sunscreen.

Even in winter we're using the stuff but if you only use yours in summer, you can only expect so many summers out of it. Of course, if applied correctly, you should be buying fresh stuff pretty frequently anyway.

There are many common, everyday items that we take for granted and keep using forever. That's not always a good idea though as stuff wears out without you seeing any signs of it.

When it comes to sunscreen, it loses strength. The active ingredients break down over time, especially if you leave them in a hot car or in direct sunlight. You can still apply it but you're not getting its full protection.

Don't use sunscreen that's 3 or more years old.
