Skipping Sunblock

As the weather gets cooler, women tend to forego the sunblock. But January through December, rain or shine, and regardless of ethnicity, everyone should apply sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 on the face and other sun-exposed areas. Constant sunblock evens out your skin tone, helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and decreases your overall risk of skin cancer. Keep it next to your deodorant or toothpaste so you can’t forget to apply it.
