4 Healthy Beauty Buys: Healthy Skin and Hair Must-Dos
Trend #1: Washing with Sunscreen
According to the International Journal of Dermatology, 86 percent of people say they took precautions before spending hours in the sun, but only 26 percent used sunscreen most of the time when they were out and about for more than an hour. "Unprotected incidental exposure, like taking a walk or even driving, causes fine lines, freckles, and skin cancer," says Elizabeth I. Goldberg, MD, founder of Urban Dermatology in New York City and a marathon runner. Safeguard your skin for everyday exposure with an ionic cleanser, which leaves behind an invisible layer of SPF 15 when you wash your face. If you'll be in the sun for an hour or more, apply (and reapply) a high-level SPF 30 to 45 sweatproof formula.
