When it comes to summertime, nothing beats hanging out in the great outdoors, soaking in the rays and working on that glorious tan. But spending time at the beach, running at the park or simply eating brunch with the girls outside, you can very quickly run the risk of skin damage.
How do you fight back against the sadly harmful nature of the sun? With SPF, of course! Whether you’re heading out for a vacation or just getting ready to run errands, you should always add a protective SPF product to your routine.
