You can use a bunch of other fancy anti-aging products, but if you’re not wearing sunscreen on a regular basis, there’s not much point to using the other products. When UV rays hit your skin cells, it makes the skin cells work harder to protect your skin from the damage that UV rays contribute to the skin. Sunscreen is not only protecting your skin from UV damage, it is also giving your cells a chance to rest and regenerate.

There are a lot of wonderful brands out there, but one brand that I recommend often is La Roche Posay, the Anthelios sunscreen because it is pretty accessible and also contains Cell-Ox Shield technology to provide broad-spectrum coverage with antioxidant protection.
