Sunscreen WINTER SUMMER SPRING AND FALL …It is well documented that sun exposure contributes to wrinkles, sunspots, hyperpigmented spots and the breakdown of skin cells. Sunscreen is the best anti-aging investment you can make and it is a must for skin cancer prevention. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or above. Apply generously every 2 hours.
