The are many things you can do to prevent the damage that readily occurs during the summer months. And the number one thing you can do to retain a youthful glow is avoid the sun.

For a start, the easiest thing to do if you are going to be out and about is to wear a hat, especially during the scorching hours of 9AM and 2PM, and preferably something wide enough to shade your face and neck. If you don’t like the fact that you might look like Katherine Hepburn in the African Queen you might want to opt for something more your style but certainly opt for a large hat for a day at the beach.

This wonderfully crafted product is great for any occasion when you are outside or just enjoying a summer walk. Aside from the zinc oxide, a sun screen that helps reflect the sun, Eminence adds vitamin rich organic fruits and herbs to keep your skin healthy, beautiful and to fight the signs of aging.

If you want something a bit more powerful I recommend Mineral Block SPF 58 by Solar Protection. This sunscreen utilizes micronized titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as its only active sunscreen ingredients. It is free of dyes, fragrance, parabens and is perfect for children and those with sensitive skin. An added benefit of Mineral Block SPF 58 is that it is water resistant, perfect for the beach!

These two products are great for the prevention of sun damaged skin and from it ultimately becoming a piece of rawhide. The Eminence Sun Defense comes in a variety of shades and can easily be used as a light foundation for natural and glowing skin. The Mineral Block by Solar Protection is fantastic for days at the beach or any occasion which you have to be exposed to the sun for prolonged periods of time. Remember sun protection will keep your skin youthful and glowing so don’t neglect it!
