Wearing Sunscreen in Your Car

According to a study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, nearly 53% of skin cancers in the US occur on the left, or drivers’, side of the body. Scientists have found that front windshields block an average of 96% of UV rays; however side windows only block an average of 71% of UV rays.

The next time you're taking a long road trip or just going around town, don't forget to apply sunscreen on your face, neck, ears, arms and legs.

Three Sunscreen Tips You Need To Live By

Sunscreen should be an important part of your daily skincare regimen, no matter the season. Here are the top three sunscreen tips you should live by: 

Tip #1: Wear sunscreen daily. Sunscreen should be worn right under your makeup and throughout the day. Apply it on your sun-exposed skin -- don't forget your toes, eyelids, back of legs, ears and hands.

Tip #2: Reapply every two hours, even after coming out of the water. And, if you forget... that's where we come in.

Tip #3: Wear SPF 30. Studies have shown there is no effect after an SPF 50. Make sure it has a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) protection.
