This general skin care tip is first and foremost: The skin you’re protecting needs to be taken care of, and this means getting lots of water and sufficient vitamins and minerals from your diet.


Your annual skin exam with a dermatologist will help you determine your skin cancer risk profile and provide you with specific needs to keep your skin protected. In between skin exams, a good facialist can explain your most vulnerable areas so you know what needs the most protection.


SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and the higher the number the more you are protected against UVB ray exposure from the sun. Many dermatologists recommend SPF 30 and above. A broad-spectrum sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays.


A broad-spectrum UV sunscreen is important to protect your skin — after all, it's formulated to stay on your skin under many different conditions! After you cleanse your face, apply sunscreen and let it sit for a few minutes, then begin your usual makeup routine.


Yep, your lush lips can get sunburned as well. Be sure to wear a sunscreen product designed for your lips with at least an SPF 15.


While there are specially crafted garments out there that offer UV protection, UVB rays can often penetrate loosely woven summer clothes (they're sneaky like that). So before you spend a day in the sun, use about a shot glass worth of sunscreen on your entire body and about a teaspoon more for your face, whether you're wearing a hat or not!


Your eye area is extremely delicate and is very vulnerable to sun damage; UV shades will not only keep the sun out of your eyes (which actually protects your eyeballs from those UV rays), but they'll keep your entire eye area looking its best.


Want to help keep your skin baby-smooth and protected from insidious sun damage? Channel your inner Old Hollywood glamazon and tote a super-lightweight sun parasol that offers UV protection AND makes a statement.


There are actually many sunscreen formulas tested to be found suitable for acne-prone skin that won't clog pores! Even many water-resistant sunscreens are non-comedogenic (fancy term meaning it won't clog pores), so don't shy away from water-resistant sunscreens if you're going to be at the pool or beach!
