Yes, we know we should always apply sunblock before heading outside, even on a cloudy day. But the truth is, SPF is easy to forget, unless we get a painful reminder (scorching sunburn).

Here we picked four products — from hair care to lip gloss — that slip sunscreen into your regular routine. Now, how do we remember to reapply?
