beauty mark: face sun protection
practice safe sunning this summer.
It’s impossible to overstate the importance of regular sunscreen use. Skimping on it can lead to premature aging, uneven tone, and, most importantly, skin cancer. And, I mean, you must apply it every single day no matter the weather or amount of planned outdoor time. Even limited daily exposure over time is harmful and clouds don’t equal shade so slapping some SPF on before stepping outside is crucial (unless you’re a mole person). Makeup and daily moisturizer with SPF don’t count but these ten sunblocks and sunscreens do.
