Sunshine is a wonderful thing, but sunscreen should go hand in hand when you are out enjoying it. About 15 minutes of unprotected sun exposure a day is good for you but beyond that you need protection. There are a lot of excellent choices in American made sunscreen and in this case you need to be able to trust the ingredients. I would not buy any sunscreen that is not clearly labeled ‘Made in the USA'. This is our exclusive list of made in USA sunscreen and I personally recommend any and all of these products based on personal use and professional knowledge.
I am a licensed esthetician and as such have attended smart aging courses. Above all things, sun damage is the leading cause of premature aging which is a small problem in comparison to skin cancer. The statistics can be alarming, but knowledge is power. Use these tips to stay safe in the sun.
- apply sunscreen
- wear a hat
- wear sunglasses
- seek some shade
- sun is not seasonal; sun damage occurs all year long
