Protect Your Skin This Summer with Staff Favorites!

Summer Skin Safety  
Summer is here and that means plenty of time outdoors. Before you head out to the beach or golf course, know your sunscreen.  You want a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB and has antioxidants in it. UV exposure from the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, premature skin aging and other skin damage. Antioxidants protect your skin from sun that penetrates through your sunscreen.  So, which sunscreen is right for you?
  – Apply to face, neck, and décolleté daily
 – Apply to face, neck and décolleté on days that you plan to be outdoors; golf, tennis, boating, gardening.
