I tell my clients all the time that the best anti-aging cream isn't found in a $400 jar of *insert expensive brand name here* but in a simple container of a GOOD SPF.
At least an SPF30. Daily. Every day. Even when the clouds are out because if that sun is in the sky, hidden or not, then you are at risk of sun damage and pre-mature aging. Period. End of story.
I could go on and on about how toxic sunbathing is and how at this point if you don't already know that then you have far worse things to worry about.
I say this because if you don't know how bad sunbathing is for you (and this most certainly includes indoor tanning beds) then clearly you have been sheltered your whole life either under a rock or hidden away in a bunker somewhere.
Hopefully neither of these are true.
Yes the sun feels nice and warm on our skin and we can still enjoy that.....WITH PROTECTION. That said, this protection does not last all day....it needs to be reapplied about every 90 minutes or so. Especially if you are in the water.
So please do yourself and your skin a favor and just protect it - it's the only one you get and although that golden glow might look pretty in your 20's......the damage it causes won't look so cute when you hit your 40's and beyond.

Cheers and enjoy the weather, just be smart about it. (Check out our sunscreen recommendations below the video)
