We all love the way we look in summer sporting a golden. When I was a teen living on Long Island we spent a lot of time at the beach. As soon as we arrived my friends would slather baby oil all over themselves in search of that tropical deep, dark tan.  Not that L.I. was tropical but it was the look they were after

Just last week my nephew was suffering from a terrible sunburn that had blistered and was peeling. It was gross and he was in a lot of pain!  Why did he suffer?  Because he wanted a tan and refused to put on sunscreen.

Sadly, all my friends and my nephew got was a deep, dark burn, a heavy dose of preliminary aging and set themselves up for potential skin cancer!

Whenever you go outside it is vital to wear sunscreen to keep the suns UVA AND UVB rays from burning and aging your skin.

However, statistics show that 30% of people do not use sunscreen correctly for it to work effectively.

In this video Alexis Simmons, Consultant with Rodan and Fields explains.
