Choose the right sunscreen to slow aging!

Sun screen the ultimate anti-aging product!Darlings, we have lotions and potions and lasers to help us look younger and more vibrant. They are fabulous! And don’t let anyone tell you today’s beauty products and treatments don’t work, because many of them do. But any expert will tell you the best weapon we have against premature aging is good sun protection!
 
For sunscreen to work you have to apply it daily and often. Finding the right sunscreen can be tricky! Some are too sticky or feel greasy. If you have sensitive skin or are acne-prone, you may break out from the wrong sunscreen. Don’t despair, and whatever you do, don’t go bare and age your face!
 
We have reviewed samples of some of the newest and best sunscreens available. There is something for everyone!
