Fight Premature Aging With These Amazing Sunscreens

sunscreen

I can’t help cringing when I think back to the days I would douse myself in tanning oil and lay out in the sun for hours in the hopes of achieving a golden glow. Little did I know some highlighter and bronzer could do the trick without damaging my skin – alas, everything in retrospect is obvious! Now, as I reminisce on those seemingly carefree days, I can’t stress enough how important skincare and suncare are. Beautiful skin is the canvas for a beautiful makeup application, but many people forget or knowingly ignore this. Instead, they choose to load up on expensive makeup products in the hopes that it will hide the years of damage improper skin and sun care have caused. Besides the aesthetic value and far more importantly, improper suncare can lead to serious health repercussions. So the best beauty advice I can give anyone is to 1. get enough sleep, 2. drink water, and 3. WEAR SUNSCREEN!
