But don’t forget your sun screen

Welcome to Spring everyone! Such a wonderful time of year!  No more static hair problems, your skin is no longer dry and itchy, you’re not freezing when you get out of the shower…all good things! Let’s just not forget one important factor that comes a long with spring…wearing sun screen.  Technically you should be wearing an SPF on your face all year round, but let’s be real here- how long are you really outside for in the winter time? Certainly not long enough for the sun to have any time to cause damage to your skin. In the spring though, we find ourselves outside much more.  Either sitting on the porch reading a book, doing some gardening, or going for a stroll around the block…it’ important to keep that face from sun damage!  So if you don’t have one already, go pick out a daily moisturizer with some SPF in it.  Doesn’t have to be a high number, 10 SPF will do just fine for normal activities.  It’s when you are baking in the sun where you’ll need a higher number!

 

So go….right now…why are you still sitting here? Get your butt to CVS and protect your skin!
