But before you venture out, make sure to take a moment to do something good for your skin!
Sun damage is the leading cause of premature aging and wrinkles – not to mention skin cancer! Yikes!

It only takes a moment to protect yourself by applying a good sunscreen to your face, neck and décolleté.
There are two types of sunscreen: physical and chemical
Physical sunscreens create a physical barrier between your skin and the sun that block and/or deflect the harmful UV rays.
Chemical sunscreens absorb the harmful UV rays to keep them from penetrating the skin surface.
Check out this chart for a side by side comparison of physical and chemical sunscreens.
Here are the two sunscreens that I reach for most:
This is a physical sunscreen that also contains antioxidants that will help nourish the skin! It goes on a little sticky, but absorbs nicely into the skin after a few moments.
This product contains both physical and chemical sunscreens, and has added oat protein for extra protection! It absorbs quickly, it’s water resistant and paraben free!
Take a moment to protect your skin before heading outside this summer, your skin will thank you!
