New Year’s Beauty Resolution (Part 3)

This year, make a resolution to protect your skin from the sun!
Damage from the sun results in fine lines, wrinkles, spots, discoloration, moles, premature aging, and skin cancer.
Prevent the damage now to avoid having to deal with the consequences later.

Make sun protection a habit and incorporate it into your daily routine.
Apply sunscreen everyday, or at the very least, use products that contain SPF.
We recommend an SPF of 30 to protect your skin from 97% of UVB radiation.

Remember that you need to reapply sunscreen throughout the day for the protection to last – especially if you sweat or swim.

Check out this chart to see the protection from different SPF values:
