Sun Protection Tips
Being exposed to the sun in the city, where due to the pollution
ozone layer is virtually nonexistent is another, much more deadlier.
Plus, in the city we have to shield ourselves from other harmful
elements such as airborne chemicals, dust, and car . That's why

care step in the summer time.
Not only a UV radiation can damage your skin and speed up the
formation of wrinkles, but it can also put you on risk of skin cancer.
No matter how much you plan to spend on your sunblock, there's a lot
of options to choose from. High-end sunscreens often use less

antioxidants, moisturizers, light tints and even anti-wrinkle

quickly absorbed, even when offer SPF30 and higher. That's why they
work better for the face.

expiration dates, and most often you'll have to use them within one or
Lips need protection too. For a day on the beach, choose a heavier
protection and ditch the color - it rubs off quickly anyway. Try RoC
Minesol SPF20 High Protection Lipstick which is waterproof, scentless,
tasteless, and gives just the right amount of glow. We use it as a balm
every day! For a touch of color, pick the lip gloss with SPF no lower
than 15. You'll love the non-sticky Biotherm Sunfitness Crystal Gloss
