Spring Break Essentials: Sunscreen
Although bronzed skin can be beautiful, sun does serious damage. A great sunscreen can protect you from skin cancer, but more immediately it helps to prevent skin discoloration, reduces the appearance of facial veins and blotchiness, and combats premature aging (wrinkles!).
I love this natural sunscreen from Josie Maran's line. The lightweight sunscreen contains argan oil, which makes your skin glow without looking greasy, and the formula absorbs beautifully. This is a huge improvement over the white goop that you buy for $5 at the local drugstore (although I'll be the first to admit that I love Banana Boat's coconut-y scent), and it's a simple addition to your daily beauty routine.
Remember: If you're going to spend the day lounging in the sun, apply even more sunscreen than you would on a regular day (and reapply every few hours). Don't skip the sunglasses either- your eyes need protection too!
