    I am designing a medal based on joke medal for a club I am part of. It is a pastich of a propaganda medal issued b Lous XIV of France. I am going to make a few changes to the design, among them the latin phrase 'Nec Pluribus Impar', wich I understand translates to the rather cryptical 'Not unequal to many'. I woul like the text to read 'Lubricate yourself well', meaning 'apply sunblock thoroughly". How would I phrase this in latin, preferably in three words?

    • Civis Illustris
    (Contra solem / contra solis lucem) te [diligenter/ apte] unge - lubricate yourself [diligently / properly] (against the sun / against the sunshine)

    Edit :
    corpus omnino ungatur - the body is to be entirely smeared with oil.
    totum corpus unge - lubricate the whole body
    corpus omnino unge - lubricate the body thoroughly
