No matter what fancy or uber-sophisticated skin care product you've got hanging out in your vanity, there's one basic tool that no woman should ever do without. We know you've heard it all before, but the right sunscreen (applied on a consistent basis) really does make an enormous difference.
To keep up with your skin's needs, you'll need a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF factor of 30 or higher, according to Glamour.com. Broad-spectrum sunscreen protects against UVA as well as UVB rays, so you'll be totally covered against premature sagging, spotting and the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. Just make sure you're being thorough.
"For workdays, reapply before your commute home if the sun is still out - even if you'll be in a car," the website urges. "And for days when you'll be outside for an extended period of time, reapply every two hours. We know it's a pain, but come on - you'll get the last laugh instead of the first laugh lines."
For the comprehensive protection your skin deserves, try a top-shelf sunscreen product such as La Thérapie Soin Solaire Complet. This broad-spectrum sunscreen absorbs rapidly into the skin, so you can use it in conjunction with your makeup and other beauty products.
