Did you know sunscreen can go bad? Yes, the bottles have an expiration date, but poor storage can also expedite the degradation process. To see if your sunscreen is still good, start by squeezing some out and examining it. Is it runny or separated? If so, it's likely gone bad and needs to be replaced. Store your new sunscreen the right way: Away from the sun and heat. Keep it in a cooler with ice or even under a towel when you're at the pool or the beach. And store it in a cool, dark place at home when it's not being used.
