Q. Should I use an SPF all year round?

A. It’s true, you know… the sun follows you wherever you go, and even on those hazy, lazy days of summer, 80% of UV rays will reach you even when it’s cloudy (Source: American Academy of Dermatology). Luckily, you can reduce your chance of skin-aging caused by casual, year-round UV exposure (like fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots and leathery texture) with the right skin care – like Bioelements SPF 50 Face Screen or Sun Diffusing Protector. So, should you wear sunscreen 365 day a year? You betcha!
