Sun Advice:
Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen like Mary Kay® SPF 30 Sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. A good rule of thumb: Adults should use about one ounce of sunscreen to liberally coat all exposed areas and reapply at least every two hours. A single 4 fl.oz. tube of SPF 30 Sunscreen can protect your skin for an 8-hour day at the beach!

Be wary of very high SPFs.
So what's the benefit of very high SPF products (SPF 70+) that are now on the U.S. market? They are good for people with highly photosensitive skin but do not provide incrementally more protection. For example, an SPF 70 blocks 98.6 percent of sunburn damage, only slightly higher than an SPF 30 product.

Sunscreen is a topic I am particularly passionate about because my daughter's father was diagnosed with melanoma twice in a five year period. And I myself have had basal cell carcinoma on my face. So I've been a committed user of sunscreen for a very long time and try to stay out of the sun!

Skin cancer is the No. 1 most common cancer, but fortunately, it is highly preventable. Scientific studies have determined that daily use of sunscreens can reduce your chances of developing some forms of skin cancer. Here are some facts to help you make the best sun-safe choices to protect your skin.

My Favorite Sunscreen Product For Your Face:
TimeWise® Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25*
Think of it as a veil of defense. With an SPF of 25, this innovative product helps prevent sun damage such as lines and discoloration before they occur by blocking damaging UVA/UVB rays. A calming peptide helps relax expression lines....and I love that!
