Sunscreen - The Single Most Important Age-Erasing Step

Sunscreen lotion is the single most important age-erasing step you can take in your daily skin care plan. Your best bet is to use a lotion or cream based sunscreen as a moisturizer for both your face and your body.

Make sure to choose a sunscreen or moisturizer-sunscreen that has an SPF (sun protection factor) of at least fifteen, but preferably thirty, or higher (such as forty-five if necessary).

Also look for a sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. These are often referred to as full-spectrum sunscreens. This form of sunscreen offers the most protection in terms of preventing the surface burning of skin and deeper tissue damage.
