4 Surprising Times to Fight the Burn

Sunshine on your cheeks might make you happy, but your face needs protection. Without it, the sun's UV rays could lead to wrinkles, spotty skin or even skin cancer. Check this list for some unexpected times when you should be safeguarding your skin with a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen moisturizer:

In the Car - While you're soaking up the scenery, your face is still soaking up harmful UV rays via the windows. Drive safely, with the protection of broad-spectrum SPF.
At Work - Maybe not as obvious, but still a good idea. Can you see the sun through a window? It sees you, too. Protect yourself.
Cloudy Days - The sun can actually do damage when it's hidden, because you don't suspect it's reaching your skin. Applying protection as if it were sunny is always a bright idea.
Every Day, Every Season - Truth is, the sun can damage your skin year-round. So basically, if you're awake and it's daytime, you should be wearing broad-spectrum SPF face moisturizer.



Why All Skin Types Need Hydrating

It's common knowledge that dry skin can benefit from moisturizer. However, oily skin needs it, too. Skin sometimes produces extra oils to try and make up for a lack of hydration. The result: greasy skin and clogged pores. So whether you have dry or oily skin, a daily moisturizer can help keep it looking and feeling healthy.



Should You Moisturize?

DRY SKIN : A daily moisturizer will help keep skin healthy and hydrated.
OILY SKIN : If not properly hydrated, even oiler skin may occur. A daily moisturizer helps regulate skin hydration.

Ok, so you're using (or thinking about using) a facial moisturizer for men. Now it's time to make sure you're getting the most bang for your buck.

Step 1 : Exfoliate : Remove dead skin cells to expose healthy looking skin
Step 2: Prepare your pores : Warm water will help unclog excess oil
Step 3: Rub it in : Massage moisturizer into your face until it’s absorbed
