It’s time to reconsider what you put on your face every day. Are you familiar with SPF moisturizers? You ought to be: No matter how tan you want to be, nor how naturally pigmented you are already, the sun’s ultraviolet rays are damaging to your skin. They mutate the cells and lead to things like fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and in some cases, skin cancer.
And while full-body cover-up is necessary for those days in the park or by the water, you need something especially built for the face every single day. The best way to ensure this is to buy (and forever commit to) SPF-packed moisturizers. They give you all the benefits of a nourishing, moisture-preserving hydrator, plus they shield you from UVA/UVB rays (the former ages the skin, the latter leads to skin cancer). Look for products that promise broad-spectrum (or dual) coverage from both UV types. You can start by considering the ones on this list.
