- Attractive stranger (optional)
Use the reach method
Try the reach method. Put a generous amount of sunscreen on your right hand, reach over your left shoulder and spread it onto your back; repeat on the other side.
Reach the lower parts of your back
Reach your right hand under your left arm to get just below where your reach ended from going over your shoulder, and then reach your left hand under your right arm. Finally, twist your right hand behind the right side of your back and your left hand behind the left side of your back to get the rest.
Use a towel
Apply your sunscreen to a towel and rub it back and forth over your back, as if you were toweling off after a shower. It's not the most economical way to apply sunscreen, but it works.
Use an applicator
Use a body lotion applicator, available at most health and beauty stores. These resemble paint rollers, but are designed for the thicker consistency of a lotion.
Use a back scrubber
Use a no-hands back scrubber, a sponge mounted on a handle usually used for washing your back. Substitute your sunscreen for soap or body wash, and you're covered.
Use a back-scratcher
Attach a soft sponge to the scratching end of a back-scratcher. Use tape, glue, or string to tie the sponge on, squirt the sunscreen onto the sponge head, and go to town.
Remember -- you can always ask an attractive stranger. It's a great way to break the ice.
