Pretty Face

So I'm a little obsessive when it comes to sun damaging my skin...especially my face.  At the end of college, I began using a face moisturizer with SPF in it every.single.day.rain.or.shine.

I spent the majority of my 25 years outside, in the sun, rockin a terrific tan...but in my last few years, I have accepted that my sunkissed beach tan days are O.V.E.R. so it's time to start PROTECTING this pasty skin of mine :) 

I asked a sweet friend of mine, an expert in skincare, what are the essential steps in protecting my face from sundamage (wrinkles, sunspots, etc...) and was given these MUST-DO tips:

1. Exfoliate a couple times a week.

2. Moisturize daily.

3. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS use sun protection.  MIN of SPF 15...every day.  (In the summer, I take it a step further and use SPF50!!) Odds are you will be stepping outside at SOME point during your day.  Instead of taking the chance that you'll forget to apply sunscreen, just use a moisturizer that has SPF already in it!
