We’re always told that it’s never good to lie, but white lies are okay, right? Jennifer Garner thinks so! The 40-year-old mother of three recently told Huffington Post that in her household, wearing sunscreen outside is non-negotiable, just like wearing a seatbelt in the car.

Jennifer tells of a defining moment years ago when she was out with friends. “They all had big hats on, and I didn't,” she said. “Suddenly you look one day and the sun damage is there... and then you see it increase exponentially.”

As a Neutrogena spokesperson, Jennifer must keep up her own complexion, but when it comes to healthy skin, appearances are one thing and health is totally another. To make sure she gets her point across to her two daughters Violet and Seraphina and her 1-year-old son Samuel, she tells an itty bitty white lie. 

"I think I once told my kids it was against the law not to wear sunscreen," she said. Well, that’s certainly one way to do it!

Jennifer also says that if her husband, Argo’s Ben Affleck, dropped the kids off at school without their daily dose of the white goo, they would for sure let him know about it.
