Easy thing to do for your health #1: Wear sunscreen

The sun is starting to shine here in NYC, and immediately as weather warms, ladies clothes start to become just a tad smaller. This means time to whip out the SPF that has been hibernating in your medicine cabinet and actually USE it. Now, many of you are going to say "but my moisturizer has SPF in it!" And yes, this is important too, but in skimpy outfit weather, protecting your face is not enough. If you are going to be in the sun for say, more than 10 minutes (ample time to get your Vitamin D kick), go on and give yourself a little smear.

Sun damage isn't just about burning, it's about long term damage to your skin cells. Tanning is actually damaging the top layer of your skin.  And even if you are dark, you need to lather up.

I mean really, who wants uneven skin, wrinkles, and age spots! Not me!
Avoid looking like this:

and give yourself a nice rubdown with a SPF of 15 or higher next time you head out!
