The weather’s heating up and so are the harmful effects of the sun’s rays. Here are a few tips from our experts to protect yourself from the sun this summer:

  • Did you know that UVB rays cause damage but don’t cause your skin to appear burned? Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen for all-round protection.
  • Check the best before date! If you’ve got some left over from last year that has passed its date, it’s time for a new one.
  • Don’t want to mess with your make-up? Use a moisturizer with a sunscreen first and put your make-up on over top. This will keep your make-up fresh for that first application.
  • If you’re still looking for that “healthy glow,” many of those moisturizers with sunscreen also come tinted, so you don’t have to give up your tan.
  • Take an all-over approach. You don’t want to be stingy with your sunscreen, so cover any exposed skin liberally. Don’t forget to wear sunglasses and protective lip balms so the sun stays away.

You don’t want to take any chances, so be sure to re-apply every few hours, especially when going in and out of the water. Keep your skin healthy and glowing this season!
