Don't take chances with the sun

Make sunscreen a part of your daily routine. The minerals contained in physical sunscreens, such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, work by forming a surface layer on the skin that will absorb, reflect and scatter the sun's harmful UV rays before they can penetrate into the skin itself. Starting sun protection at an early age, and continuing the practice, can minimize premature aging of the skin.

For a hassle-free way to incorporate sun protection into your skin care routine, look for a moisturizer that offers SPF30 coverage. Another alternative is to use moisturizing products that provide sunless colour. Some sunless tanning moisturizers even come in different tones, so you can customize the shade that you want to achieve.
